Professional reviews

"As the Civil War moves closer to India Moody's home in Virginia, she and her family see firsthand the horrors of the war. When her father, an ambulance driver, is reported missing, India journeys to the battlefield to find him. What she sees and experiences, no one, particularly a child, should ever behold. Narrator Julia Gibson splendidly re-creates family, friends, neighbors, and soldiers in a convincing manner. Listeners are on the frontier with India. She learns real grief when her father is killed and she must help her devastated mother. Added interest--and relief--is provided by India's first romance and her fascination with chemistry and science, rather than her religion lessons. An outstanding story brings the reality of war to a young audience. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
