Publisher's Summary

This Side of the River told from multiple narrators, is a gritty tale that takes place in the summer of 1865 after the Confederacy has collapsed. A contingent of young Civil War widows who have survived General Sherman's March to the Sea rally around a teenage, Christ-haunted Texas Ranger named Cat Harvey to travel to Ohio to burn down Sherman's home.
This compelling tale explores themes of trauma, revenge, redemption, and the disorder known then as nostalgia or soldier's heart. Author Corey Mesler proclaimed This Side of the River yarn-spinning of the highest order. Stayton's narrative, which gives Confederate soldiers' body servants a voice that few Civil War stories do, will burn bright long after you've finished the book.

Very Dark-did not really care for it

The idea of this book is interesting especially with the roles of women deemed appropriate for this time in history. However, the main character develops into something very disturbing . I could not finish the book . Also there are scenes of violence against women that are offensive.
The best part of this book were the different narrators. They were excellent.
