     Occasionally one of the thousands of books published each year just grabs the reader and won’t let go. This is one of those rare finds...this novel set in southern New Mexico during the Civil War is entertaining, informative, and beautifully written. It could be placed on the mystery shelves as well... Matty Summerhayes narrates, coaxes, amazes and thoroughly captures her audience... Be prepared to forget meals and stay up all night when you start reading this book. Matty’s word-pictures and unorthodox civil disobedience will hold your attention until the last page.
