A good review in Kirkus for Courageous Women of the Civil War

How about that? The first review — like the first bluebird of spring. At least it was a bluebird and not a Pteranodon come to tear my head off.

 The review is from Kirkus, and though I’ve heard they can be pretty harsh reviewers, my book got an even-handed treatment and I find that a good thing.

The last sentence of the review: “The biographies include photos of some of the women and provide a fascinating and engaging look at their activities, motivations, trials, and later lives. Excellent, detailed backmatter adds to the volume’s usefulness. A solid resource.”

Here is the full review. O happy day!
