As Larkin struggles to heal, she finds herself drawn deep into Emily’s life and the secrets she kept.

Indiana, 1861
The only thing more dangerous to Emily Wilson than a rebel soldier is her own comrades in the Union. But in the minds of her fellow soldiers, if it dresses like a man, swears like a man, and shoots like a man, it must be a man.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Through moving details in twin centuries, both the power of war to destroy and the healing nature of love and art, even across time, are beautifully conveyed.” Historical Novel Society Reviews
“This tender story about complex women is an easy one to fall into. It makes the perfect read for those who savor the finer details of historical fiction and love to cheer for strong female protagonists.” Due South Magazine (North Carolina)
“A compelling examination of war and its contradictions and a moving story of two women fighting for their own places in the world.” Shelf Awareness
“Larkin and Emily’s stories are equally fascinating and eye-opening. Based on the real-life stories of women who served, this is an excellent read and highly recommended for every public library.” Booklist
“Two women, separated by a century and a half, survive life in the United States military in Estes’ suspenseful, neatly structured second novel…Brings the Civil War era to life and effectively links it to contemporary times.” Kirkus Reviews
