River Between Us

River Between Us

What are the roots of your family? This is a look back to the Civil War and the lives of the family members at that time. A steamboat pulls up and off come two mysterious women. There's Calinda, who cooks and makes medicine, and her companion, Delphine, age 15, who is surrounded by mystery. Who are these women? Where do they come from and why? Then young Noah goes off to fight in the Civil War, and Tilly, our narrator, sets forth with Delphine to find him and bring him home to safety. It's a rich look at the complexity of the times and the many disruptions and changes in the lives of so many families as a result of the Civil War. 176 pages Ages 10-13
