Today, the empowerment of women is happening all around the world, but women have proved their strength and devotion to family and country long before 2019. In the American Civil War, over four hundred women dressed as men to serve as soldiers and spies. The character of Alexandra is based on the real life experiences of Sarah Edmonds Seelye, Sarah Rosetta Wakeman, and the other women who disguised themselves as men to serve as soldiers in the American Civil War.

In this book, Alexandra is assigned to the Forty-Eighth Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, and all her ventures follow the progress documented

by this regiment throughout the war.

I’m thrilled to share this story with you! I hope you laugh, and cry, and fall in love.

Would my 14 year old son like the book?

Absolutely!  The excitement of hunting, battles, and spies will keep his interest.


Is it all about battles and bloodshed?

Not at all.  The story has tender moments of helping to save slaves lives, meeting other historical women so important to the Civil War history such as Clara Barton and Harriet Tubman.
