A Musket in My Hands

By Sandra Merville Hart

Description:

"Can I count on you in times of great need?”

Callie Jennings reels from her pa’s decision that she must marry his friend, a man older than him. Her heart belongs to her soldier hero, Zach Pearson, but Pa won’t change his mind. Callie has no place to hide. Then her sister, Louisa, proposes a shocking alternative.

Zach still hears his pa’s scornful word—quitter. He’s determined to make something of himself as a soldier. He’ll serve the Confederacy until they win the war. If they win the war.

Callie and Louisa disguise themselves as soldiers and muster into the Confederate army in the fall of 1864. Times are tough and getting tougher for their Confederacy. For Callie, shooting anyone, especially former countrymen, is out of the question—until truth and love and honor come together on the battlefield.

Book Takeaway:

Forgiveness

Why the author wrote this book:

While researching aspects of the Civil War, I was appalled at all that the Southerners endured--both soldiers and citizens alike. The Civil War was mostly fought on Southern land, bringing untold misery in its wake.
