The Day Dixie Died is now available on Kindle for around $15. It is a depressing book, but it contains compelling true stories of the lives of Southerners after the Civil War was supposed to be over.
This was a collaboration with my former husband. As the word former implies, we did not always see eye-to-eye. I learned a lot from him and I learned a lot in the collaboration, but were I to write this book today I think it would be very different. The months and years of research that went into it revealed a world of incredible people, both historic and contemporary, for whom I am so grateful to know. Their presence in my life has made it much richer. I hope to share their stories compassionately and honestly throughout the months and years to come.
Now, back to the Civil War and Kansas.
