A bombshell of a book! This historical novel, both fiction and nonfiction, explodes throughout the story. Readers of Civil War history, teachers, and genealogists will find it fascinating. Set in Louisiana from 1875 to 1987, characters travel to post war Texas trying to locate their roots and families. Wingate’s descriptions and local humorous speech idioms keep the reader spellbound. A compelling read.
