      this little book brought to life the amazing things one woman accomplished during a horrible period of our waris woman had gumption.

      Even though this was a really interesting book, I did get a feeling that Cornelia Hancock let the power go to her head. I really enjoyed the first few chapters, hit a "boring doldrum" and then enjoyed everything until the last 2 chapters. She really let the fact that she was one of the best nurses where she was go to her head and she was very haughty when something didn't go her way. It was also a little bit hard to read because of all the misspellings and the use of thou, art, and thy. Over all [...]

      Fascinating account of a Quaker nurse in the Northern army. Taken from her personal letters. It was interesting to see the blind spots in her views. Makes me more aware of the fact that I am sure I have equally obvious blind spots. Well worth the time to read for any interested in the Civil War.

      One hates to pick at such a book, given that it's actual letters from someone who lived through this war etc, but there's very little inner life here

      I put it on my Nook and only read it when I went to the gym. It was a way to keep exercising.
