Review: TWO GIRLS OF GETTSYBURG by Lisa Klein

Writing Wrongs reviewed Two Girls of Gettysburg by Lisa Klein for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

Lizzie is a prickly narrator at first, defensive and insecure at times. Her cousin Rosanna is flighty and superficial. One thing I enjoyed about the story is how the author stayed true to the girls’ core personalities, yet showed how they changed and grew during the course of the story.

The historical detail is excellent and accessible for those new to reading about the Civil War. While we do see and hear about many battles, we also get a good feel for what life was like for those not in either the Union or Confederate Army. But there’s plenty of that as well. Not just battles, but the aftermath, and conditions the soldiers (and those who cared for them) lived in.
