July is here! Please help make our book of the month program awesome! Won't it be amazing to have a hundred users on this website reading the same book at around the same time and then discussing it right here on this website?!.
Daphne wrote:I have read Geraldine Brooks' book March. I, too, was pleasantly surprised. I learned about what it was like to be on a war front in such a war, and a bit about what was going on politically in the background - about Ralph Waldo Emerson's writing during the war, about John Brown's effects - mostly about the Virginia war effort, and how very descriptive the book was on daily war.
This book also has some quite surprising romances going on!
