ready and read for book group
on a scale of 1-10 i'd give it a 7
historical fiction
renewed appreciation for modern medicine
reminder of how terrible war is
not crazy for supposition when it comes to what Lincoln was thinking


favorite line..."You would think that sorrow would dissipate, and it does for most, but when you spend years missing someone, it becomes an ever-flowing spring." (363)

I loved the book also. Who would have thought that the majority of deaths during the war came from disease and such poor medical facilities to treat the wounded. We are truly blessed to live in these modern times.
