    MOBI Geraldine Brooks ✓ March Kindle ¼ ✓ march pdf, March KindleI wanted desperately to like this book And I sort of did Little Women is one of my wife's favs and I'm a sucker for Civil War novels all five billion of 'em But this book though elegantly written struck me as too schmaltzy and too overly preachy to enjoy It was also a wee bit predictable as a Civ War novel Brooks made sure to hit the Twelve Points of the True CW Novel 1 interracial romance 2 old urbane southern woman with power 3 the meat and stench of the field hospital 4 inverted moral systems 5 corrupt or failed preachers 6 the moral clarity of the narrator compared
