Told from multiple narrators, this gritty tale takes place in the summer of 1865 after the Confederacy has collapsed. A contingent of young Civil War widows who have survived General Sherman’s March to the Sea rally around a teenage, Christ-haunted Texas Ranger name Cat Harvey to travel to Ohio to burn down Sherman’s home. This compelling tale explores themes of trauma, revenge, redemption, and the disorder known them as “nostalgia” or “soldier’s heart.”
