Kisses From Your Beloved - Softcover

I hope you enjoy this Civil War love story of Sadie Wilkes and Duvall Woodridge, a young couple caught up in the unrest of the Civil War. The Kisses from Your Beloved program consists of twelve, 10 inch blocks and twelve love letters between our couple. As they correspond during the years of the war, you will learn about their thoughts and feelings. I hope it expresses the tanglement of the people and the politics of the time. There are so many precursors of what brought us to the Civil War politics, prejudices, business, the growth of a country, women s rights, rebels, and of course slavery just to name a few. I want to present the issues as they saw them and let you come away with your own thoughts and opinions. The reasons for why and what the fighting in the Civil War was for is still a hot topic among historians today. ................................................................ This story is a side bar to my family's story of the Mailly Women. For those of you reading my novels, Sadie is a cousin to Abby and Emma Wilkes. Both of these stories will come to a head at the Battle of Vicksburg during the summer of 1863. My research has been from actual Civil War letters. This is the best way to get the grass roots of how the people of the times felt about the issues. The Pearce Civil War Museum in Corsicana, Texas has a large amount of information and many letters as well. Of course, my family history passed down by the women in our family is my purest form of information as well as inspiration.
