Sunflower sisters : a novel

Kelly, Martha Hall (author.).

Summary

Summary: 1859. When war ignites the nation, Georgeanne "Georgey" Woolsey follows her passion for nursing during a time when doctors considered women a bother on the battlefront. She and her sister Eliza venture from New York to Gettysburg and witness the unparalleled horrors of slavery as they become involved in the war effort. In the South, Jemma is enslaved on the Peeler Plantation in Maryland; her sister, Patience, is enslaved on the plantation next door. Both live in fear of LeBaron, an abusive overseer who tracks their every move. When Jemma is sold at the same time the Union army comes through, she sees a chance to finally escape-- but only by abandoning the family she loves. -- adapted from jacket
