Read full description of the books:



This was a great personal view of living through the Civil War.

After a couple pages, I already felt a bond with Amelia Martin (aka Wickie).
Her unique thoughts, ideas, and fears of the war were displayed very well through her diary entries.

It was also interesting that her mother and father had different views on slavery. Her mother, believing that people should continue owning slaves, and her Father, wanting to help set them free. Thus, this caused much a strained relationship between Amelia's parents. The war really tore people, even families apart.

I didn't realize quite how attached I was to Amelia and the other characters in the story until the end. The ending was not exactly happy, it couldn't be. The war was still going on, Amelia's father had given her mother divorce papers, and Amelia's friend(soon to be husband), Daniel was away fighting in the war still.

But all the characters, each in their own way, had found peace, as told in the end.

I'd definitely recommend this.
