A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Part One Of Two Parts

Lucy Mardsen is the widow of the Civil War's last surviving soldier. She is now half-blind, 99 years old, locked in a charity home and very talkative.

For Lucy, the Civil War is the stuff of gritty, comic legend and her terms are the common foot soldier's -- ribald and blunt. Her story offers a gallery of characters: aristocrats and sharecroppers, blacks and whites, slaves and free men -- Lee and Lincoln among them. With her last energies she cracks jokes, names names and tells how it really was. Throughout it all the stakes were always high: the lives of her nine children, the freedom of her best friend and her own emancipation.

"This remarkable first novel is a gem; entertaining, engrossing and memorable. An unforgettable reading experience." (Publishers Weekly)
