Chiaverini's Book Mrs Grant and Madame Jule

 I just have to tell you about this book that I'm reading.  I so enjoy Chiaverini's books; I've read almost of all them.  I also love history and books about the Civil War.  So, when Chiaverini's people invited me to review her newest book, I jumped at the chance.

That aside - it really is a excellant book and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.  It's about Julia, who will eventually marry Uylsses Grant,  and her slave Jule.   As you know Grant is a Unionist from the North and obviously Julia is from the south.  The story begins before the Civil War so we are able to envision how life has shaped the characters and the changes they go through. 

Chiaverini is so good at bringing her characters to life and running with a story, I just get lost in it.  I wish didn't have to work for a living and could stay home a finish this book!  LOL 

Happy Stitching and Reading.
