Description

This historical novel offers "a fascinating glimpse into Civil War life from an unconventional perspective" (Kirkus Reviews). A Pulpwood Queens Bonus Book of the Year Before joining the Confederate army, brothers Joseph and Thomas were actually sisters—Josephine and Libby. But that bloodiest battle, Antietam, leaves Libby widowed. She vows vengeance, dons her husband Arden's clothes, and sneaks off to enlist with the Stonewall Brigade, swearing to kill one Yankee for every year of her husband's too-short life. Desperate to protect her grief-crazed sister, Josephine insists on joining her. Surrounded by flying bullets, deprivation, and illness, the sisters also face other dangers: Libby hurtles toward madness, haunted and urged on by her husband's ghost, while Josephine falls for a fellow soldier. She lives in fear, both of revealing their disguise and of losing her first love before she can make her heart known to him. In Sisters of Shiloh, bestselling novelist Kathy Hepinstall writes with her sister, Becky, to show readers the hopes of love and war, the impossible-to-sever bonds of sisterhood, and how what matters most can both hurt and heal.
