Annie, Between the States - L. Elliott

Annie, Between the States - L. Elliott. CHAPTER ONE. July 21, 1861. Rather than letting states leave the Union as the Constitution guaranteed they could do if they no longer agreed with its policies, President Lincoln declared war and called for seventy-five thousand volunteers to put down the insurrection-eight thousand recruits were required of Virginia, he said. That was when, in May, Virginia finally, reluctantly, opted to secede from a government that demanded it wage war against its closest friends.

Elliott's novel opens with the Battle of Manassas and a sea of confusion as Union troops retreat across the property of 15-year-old Annie Sinclair. By the end of the war, Annie's home and all of her relationships have changed irrevocably. Battle scenes are so powerfully drawn that readers will be engaged from chapter one. Though history lessons sometimes intrude on the narrative, Elliott does an admirable job of balancing the human story and the historical context.

The civil war has broken out, and Annie Sinclair's Virginia home, Hickory Heights, is right in the line of battle. Caught up in the rising conflict, Annie and her mother tend to wounded soldiers while Annie's older brother, Laurence, enlists in the Confederate cavalry under Jeb Stuart. Even Annie's rambunctious baby brother, Jamie, joins John Mosby, the notorious "Gray Ghost." Faced with invading armies, Annie is compelled into a riskier role to protect her family and farm. She conceals Confederate soldiers and warns Southern commanders of Union traps, and the flamboyant Jeb Stuart dubs her "Lady Liberty."

Annie's loyalty is clear until a wounded Union officer is dragged onto her porch. Saved from a bullet by a volume of Keats' poetry he keeps in his pocket, Thomas Walker startles Annie with his love of verse. After several chance encounters, Annie is surprised by her growing interest in the dark-eyed Northerner as they connect through a shared passion for poetry.

As the war rages on, Annie begins to question some of the values driving Virginia's involvement. Then tragedy befalls Hickory Heights, and Annie becomes the subject of a shocking accusation. She must confront the largest quandary of all: choosing her own course.

L. M. Elliott crafts a stirring novel that carries readers from the Manassas battlefield to fancy-dress balls to the burning of the Shenandoah Valley while capturing the tenacious spirit of a young heroine facing an extraordinary, complex time in American history.

Good book for teens learning about the civil war, though I agree with other reviewers a bit too heavy on details/facts in the beginning of the book and I could see a few locations throughout the book where edits could have been made, such as no need to describe in great detail how a dance is danced, just tell us they danced and what went on with the two characters.
The story does pick up the pace mid-way through and that is when it starts to get interesting, plus the writing tightens up.
It is essentially the tale of a Virginia girl trying to keep her family intact and torn between her loyal to the confederacy and her growing love of a union solider. I think I would have liked this book more when I was 14, clean romance intertwined with historical fiction

"Annie, Between the States" is a good quick read, appropriate for middle school through adult. There are no intimate or graphic scenes, or profane language. The plot is about Annie, a teen in Virginia, who must weather the course of the war around her home, Hickory Heights. Annie endures many battles, and becomes close to General Jeb Stuart and Colonel John Mosby, of the Confederacy. During one of the battles, she befriends a Northern boy, Thomas Walker, and Walker becomes entwined in Annie's story as the war rages on.

The book is well-written, with no typos or editing issues. The plot moves quickly; I was able to finish this over a weekend. The historical references are well-researched; and history is not exaggerated or overwhelming, but presented plainly, enhancing the storyline. The characters are barely developed, but the simplicity is not detrimental. The romantic elements, advertised by the publisher, are non-existent. This isn't a Civil War soap opera, but the struggle of one girl against all the wartime elements that threaten her family in sort of an after-school-special presentation.

I gave this book four stars due to the disappointing ending: the resolution seemed quickly contrived to close the book, rather than sticking with the plot development that has built for 90 percent of the story -- as if the author was called on Thursday evening and told the final chapter was due on Saturday. I was particularly disappointed with the sudden Hallmark-type of realizations by the characters at the end, with no thought as to being logical or true to the characters up to that point. This left me feeling cheated of something that could have been more.

Fabulous! Very well written historical fiction. Annie is likeable and her dilemma is an intriguing possibility. Historical facts woven throughout seamlessly and brings well-known characters from the Civil War to life. Rated G, which is SO unusual, today. Safe for any age.

I first read this book my sophomore year of high school. Then re-read it for a book report my senior year. This it the third time I've read it! I normally never reread a book but I absolutely love this one. The way Annie steps up and does what she needs to to help protect her family, she truly is Lady Liberty for her family. The relationship that developed between her and her husband in the end! The love he has for her is truly amazing.

I enjoy historical fiction, and I liked this book told from the viewpoint of a Confederate family in Virginia. It was historically accurate and is a good read for anyone wanting a foundational story concerning the Civil War. It sometimes felt it was trying to cover too much territory, mentioning many major battles and events in order to give the reader a lot of elementary history. Having said this, though, too few people know enough about the events of the Civil War and the tremendous toll it took upon our country as whole; I applaud the author for giving her readers a pretty good historical piece that fosters knowing more about this crucial time period in American history.

I loved this book! The "real" historical characters included in this story were authentic based on information I have read of them. The many painful (and some happy) situations this family went thru as residents of Virginia during the Civil War seemed realistic and drew me in emotionally. And the love story was very sweet! I only wish the author had included an epilogue to reveal a little more of their love story when they were finally together... they were rarely together in the story because they were in the middle of War and on opposite sides! Otherwise, this was a really great historical fiction book and I would highly recommend to history lovers!

I liked this but it is suspiciously similar to, & not as well written as, The Bregdan Chronicles by Ginny Dye. I'm not sure who had the original story line but they are virtually identical. I would have liked this better had I not read the others 1st. Since they are series there is a lot more detail than in just one book. If you haven't read the series try this one & maybe you will want to read the others.
How many times do you hear someone say I couldn't put it down? This is just another book that I could not put down! The author is done an amazing job of weaving together history and romance. I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot as well as the accuracy of the historical events. A must read!
