Two women, living centuries apart, fighting for our country’s freedom … and their own

Seattle, WashingtonLarkin Bennett has always known her place, whether it’s surrounded by her loving family in the lush greenery of the Pacific Northwest, or riding on a dusty convoy in Afghanistan. But all that changed the day tragedy struck her unit and took away everything she held dear. Soon after, Larkin discovers an unexpected treasure: the diary of Emily Wilson, a young woman who disguised herself as a man to fight for the Union in the Civil War. As Larkin struggles to heal, she finds herself drawn deep into Emily’s life and the secrets she kept.

Indiana, 1861The only thing more dangerous to Emily Wilson than a rebel soldier is her own comrades in the Union. But in the minds of her fellow soldiers, if it dresses like a man, swears like a man, and shoots like a man, it must be a man. As the war marches on and takes its terrible toll, Emily begins to question everything she has been told about the freedom she is supposed to be fighting for.

Kelli Estes lived in the deserts of eastern Washington state and Arizona before settling in the Seattle area. She’s passionate about stories that help us see how the past shaped who we are, and how we all have more in common than we think.

Reviews

“Through moving details in twin centuries, both the power of war to destroy and the healing nature of love and art, even across time, are beautifully conveyed.”

“This tender story about complex women is an easy one to fall into. It makes the perfect read for those who savor the finer details of historical fiction and love to cheer for strong female protagonists.”

“A compelling examination of war and its contradictions and a moving story of two women fighting for their own places in the world.”

“Larkin and Emily’s stories are equally fascinating and eye-opening. Based on the real-life stories of women who served, this is an excellent read and highly recommended for every public library.”

“Two women, separated by a century and a half, survive life in the United States military in Estes’ suspenseful, neatly structured second novel…Brings the Civil War era to life and effectively links it to contemporary times.”
