Nashville Author's Gettysburg by Morning Receiving Spectacular Reviews

S For Story/10551088
LAS VEGAS - s4story -- There are over 200 hundred documented cases of women who dressed as men to fight in the Civil War. Gettysburg by Morning is the first novel that explores this phenomenon from the battlefield to the White House.

From the Kirkus Review

Eloise is a remarkable and memorable hero—deeply intelligent and equally decent, she is profoundly changed by her experiences of battle and death and fully realizes the societal limitations placed on her gender: "I was surprised by how much my deception allowed me more freedom and responsibility than my real identity. I never realized just how merely being a woman could hamper my freedom of movement and my entrance into establishments." This is a historically astute story that deftly highlights an element of the war largely neglected.

From Midwest Book Review

Simply stated, "Gettysburg by Morning" is unabashedly recommended for personal reading lists and community library Historical Fiction collections.
