Seventeen-year-old Belle Boyd, an avowed rebel with a dangerous temper, shot a Union soldier in her home and became a courier and spy for the Confederate army, using her considerable charms to seduce men on both sides. Emma Edmonds disguised herself as a man to enlist as a Union private named Frank Thompson, witnessing the bloodiest battles of the war and infiltrating enemy lines, all the while fearing that her past would catch up with her. The beautiful widow Rose O'Neal Greenhow engaged in affairs with powerful Northern politicians, used her young daughter to send information to Southern generals, and sailed abroad to lobby for the Confederacy, a journey that cost her more than she ever imagined. Elizabeth Van Lew, a wealthy Richmond abolitionist, hid behind her proper Southern manners as she orchestrated a far-reaching espionage ring-even placing a former slave inside the Confederate White House-right under the noses of increasingly suspicious rebel detectives. Abbott's pulse-quickening narrative weaves the adventures of these four forgotten daredevils into the tumultuous landscape of a broken America, evoking a secret world that will surprise even the most avid enthusiasts of Civil War-era history. With a cast of real-life characters, including Nathaniel Hawthorne, General Stonewall Jackson, Detective Allan Pinkerton, Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, and Emperor Napolǒn III, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy shines a dramatic new light on these daring-and, until now, unsung-heroines., Blackstone Audio, Inc,publisher., Bowser, Mary Elizabeth,approximately 1840-, Boyd, Belle,1844-1900., CD HISTORY US CIV WAR, Compact discs., DLCengDLCrdaDLCNjBwBT, Digital content provided by hoopla., Draws from primary source material and interviews to weave together the adventures of four courageous women who risked everything to become spies during the most tumultuous years of the Civil War., E608.A22 2014, E608.A22 2014ab, E608.A22 2014d, Findaway World, LLC., First edition., Greenhow, Rose O'Neal,1814-1864., HISTORY / United States / Civil War Period (1850-1877), HISTORY US CIV WAR, Harper Audio (Firm), HarperCollins (Firm), History., Includes bibliographical references (pages 483-495) and index., Issued on Playaway, a dedicated audio media player., Karen Abbott illuminates one of the most fascinating yet little known aspects of the Civil War: the stories of four courageous women--a socialite, a farm girl, an abolitionist, and a widow--who were spies. After shooting a Union soldier in her front hall with a pocket pistol, Belle Boyd became a courier and spy for the Confederate army, using her charms to seduce men on both sides. Emma Edmonds cut off her hair and assumed the identity of a man to enlist as a Union private, witnessing the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. The beautiful widow, Rose O'Neale Greenhow, engaged in affairs with powerful Northern politicians to gather intelligence for the Confederacy, and used her young daughter to send information to Southern generals. Elizabeth Van Lew, a wealthy Richmond abolitionist, hid behind her proper Southern manners as she orchestrated a far-reaching espionage ring, right under the noses of suspicious rebel detectives. Using a wealth of primary source material and interviews with the spies' descendants, Abbott seamlessly weaves the adventures of these four heroines throughout the tumultuous years of the war., Liar, temptress, soldier, spy :four women undercover in the Civil War /Karen Abbott., Liar, temptress, soldier, spy :four women undercover in the Civil WarKaren Abbott., Liar, temptress, soldier, spy :four women undercover in the Civil Warby Karen Abbott., Liar, temptress, soldier, spyfour women undercover in the Civil War /Karen Abbott., MOM9172336BT0014716079L41569000000ACPL33021026812955, MOM9172336BT0014716079L41569000000ACPL33021026812963, MWT11586910, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Military participation, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York, NY :Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers,[2014], One set of earphones and one AAA battery required for listening., PLAYAWAY HISTORY US CIV WAR, PLAYAengrdaPLAYAOCLCOOCLCFOCLBYV, Playaway Digital Audio., Previously released by HarperCollins Publishers, ℗2014., Read by Karen White., Release date supplied by publisher., SOCIAL SCIENCE / Women's Studies, SOCIAL SCIENCE / Women's Studies., Secret service., Solon, Ohio :Findaway World, LLC,[2014], Splendid and Silent Suns (A Note) -- Part one: 1861 -- The Fastest Girl in Virginia (or anywhere else for that matter) -- Our Woman -- A Shaft In Her Quiver -- As If They Were Chased By Demons -- Never As Pretty As Her Portrait Shows -- Little Rebel Heart On Fire -- Admirable Self-Denial -- The Birds of the Air -- The Secret Room -- Stakeout -- Hard to Name -- Crinoline and Quinine -- Dark and Gloomy Perils -- Unmasked -- The Defenseless Sex -- Part two: 1862 -- Not Your Ideal of a Beautiful Soldier -- She Will Fool You Out of Your Eyes -- Rebel Vixens of the Slave States -- Wise As Serpents and Harmless As Doves -- A Woman Usually Tells All She Knows -- A Slave Called "Ned" -- Perfectly Insane On the Subject of Men -- The Other Side of the River -- My Love to All the Dear Boys -- One Grain of Manhood -- The Madam Looks Much Changed -- The Secesh Cleopatra -- The Bright Rush of Life, The Hurry of Death -- She Breathes, She Burns -- The Still, Small Voice -- Richmond Underground -- Playing Dead -- Part three: 1863 -- When You Think He May Be Killed Tomorrow -- Bread Or Blood -- A Wean That's Born To Be Hung -- A dreadful blow -- No One Ignorant of the Danger -- La Belle Rebelle -- Women Make War Upon Each Other -- Please Give Us Some of Your Blood -- Part four: 1864 -- That Unhappy Country -- Despicable Remedies -- The Sanctuary of a Modest Girl -- You Are Very Poor Company -- Be Prudent And Never Come Again -- Goodbye, Mrs. Greenhow -- This Verdict of Lunacy -- The Delicacy of the Situation -- Not At All Changed By Death -- The Sweet Little Man -- Like Most of Her Sex -- Part five: 1865 -- The Way A Child Loves Its Mother -- As This Mighty Work Was Done -- Epilogue., The never-before-told story of four real-life women who risked everything to take on a life of espionage during the Civil War., Title from container., Title from web page., True Crime / Espionage., Unabridged., United States, United States., Van Lew, Elizabeth L.,1818-1900., White, Karennarrator., Women spies, Women spies., Women., ZbazqBlackstone Audio, [Ashland, Oregon] :Blackstone Audio, Inc. :Harper Audio,[2014], [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2014., audio discsd, audio fileACLEP, audio fileCD audio, audios, computerc, data file, digital, digitalnon-volatile flash memory, digitaloptical, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780062332165_180.jpeg, n-us---n-usu--, online resourcecr, othernz, othersz, pcc, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc, xiii, 513 pages :illustrations ;24 cm, ℗2014
