Leigh Ann’s Civil War by Ann Rinaldi

Rinaldi, Ann Leigh Ann’s Civil War, 297 p. Harcourt, 2009. $17.00. Content: G. First Leigh Ann was a spoiled Southern belle. Raised by her older brother and her extended family, including a kind, but befuddled father; and estranged from her mother. Then the American Civil War started and Leigh Ann’s ordered world is falling apart. From sneak attacks on the rest of the family by her own mother to challenges in making ends meet during the war – Leigh Ann is going to have to grow up to survive. Then the biggest challenge of all comes – arrested by Yankees for her part in trying to preserve her family’s finished goods mill. Finally! Ann Rinaldi has written a newer title that I can love. Add this one to your historical fiction collection! EL, MS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher
