Last Friday was book club night for the Piedmont Readers. The book up for discussion was March, by Geraldine Brooks. Geradine Brooks is a fantastic writer and this was a great read. Remember the book Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott? It was the story of the March family, specifically Mrs. March and her four daughters during the Civil War while Mr. March is off to war. The first half of March tells the story of Mr. March encountering the Civil War in Virginia and the second half of March tells the story of Mrs. March's reactions and reflections on what has happened to Mr. March when she visits him in Washington D.C. in a Union hosptital. I would give this book five stars!
