An emotional look at women in the military, past and present. Emily is driven to disguise herself as a man to serve along side her brother during the Civil War. Larkin is a veteran learning to live again as a civilian after 2 deployments to Afghanistan. Through Emily's diary, Larkin begins to cope with her PTSD and finds a way to enjoy life again. Thoroughly researched, Estes brings to life some "badass" women whose stories deserve telling. ??

"These women were badass. Women had always been badass, and it was time the world acknowledged that." (In reference to female soldiers in the American Civil War and even earlier.) #badass #strongwomen #womensoldiers #wartime #patriotism #honor #family #ptsd #onceuponabookclub

Wales, an unexplored country! This looks like Captain Corelli's Mandolin meets the settings of Susanna Kearsley and Diana Gabaldon. A steal at Another Read Through bookshop, used! #pdx #local #indie #Celtic #wartime #historicalfiction
