SRP 2011 REVIEW: This book was an emotional story of a farming family in the civil war, that had a brother and a father in the confederate army. A wounded confederate soldier ends up on Haswell Magruder's farm. He convinces his mother to take the man in and treat his wounds, despite the risk of what the Yankees would do to them if they were to get caught. One night, this feared event happened, leaving 13 year old Haswell in charge of his sister and on the way to his relative's house. This story is full of emotion, which I enjoy.
