THE WIDOW OF THE SOUTH
Saturday, September 6, 2008, The Ladies' Historical Tea Society will have an Iced Tea Social and book discussion of The Widow of The South by Robert Hicks. This book takes an interesting look at the life of Carrie McGavock of Franklin, TN. Carrie begins the story as a regular southern woman caught up against the backdrop of the tragic Civil War. In the midst of all the mourning of personal losses, death and devastation, she is transformed from the mere ordinary to extraordinary and reaches the status of legend. I will be posting pictures and comments next week from this event and welcome any bloggers who have read this book to post their comments and thoughts as well.
