The Widow of the South - (Audiobook) - Robert Hicks

This book has been on my list for a while. I liked most of the story, but it was a little hard to get into the romance with Carrie and Zachariah being mean to each other at first and her beating him up after she realized he loved her. She was weird, and he was stubborn. I liked how Zachariah carried the colors onto the battlefield-that was a good part, and, even though she acted kind of obsessively about it, I liked that Carrie made it her mission to get the soldiers buried properly. I shed a few tears at the ending, but I don't feel like I really connected with the whole story or the rest of the characters in it. I wanted more romance and explanation of what came to pass between Zachariah and Carrie. It's been a little while since I listened to the book, and I have forgotten a few things so I know this review is probably not very helpful.

I liked it, but I don't think I'll listen to this one again.
