Review: JARRETTSVILLE by Cornelia Nixon

Savvy Verse & Wit read and reviewed Jarrettsville by Cornelia Nixon for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

With tensions running high, the only possible outcome for a young love between Martha Jane Cairnes, the daughter of a Southern and loyal Confederate family, and Nick McComas, a former Union soldier and advocate of Black rights, is heartache and murder.

Nixon rips pages from events in her family history to create a novel that breaths life into the tensions following the U.S. Civil War.
