Beth Fish Reads reviewed Bohemian Girl by Terese Svoboda for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011. Here’s an excerpt:
Harriet’s journey across the Great Plains during the Civil War years is neither romantic nor gratuitously violent; it is simply her reality: from hungry nights alone to run-ins with soldiers and chance meetings with other wanderers. As a consequence of one of those encounters, Harriet takes on the care of a baby boy when another young girl, claiming to be his sister, decides to abandon him. Making the best of every possible opportunity, Harriet finds a way to raise the boy, sacrificing her own desires to do right by him, even as those she loves and trusts unhesitatingly leave her behind.
