Daughter of the Regiment by Stephanie Grace Whitson ~ Review

Daughter of the RegimentLucie's Review:

Maggie is a tall, strong, capable young woman, who grew up alongside her brothers, Jack and Seamus. She's never fit in with the "Southern Belles" of Missouri, and never had a girl she could call her friend.

When her brothers join the army, they leave her with the farm. But marauders attack, she is barely able to fend them off, saving her Uncle Paddy.

When Maggie hears that her brother has been put on the wounded register, so goes to him. And due to circumstances beyond her control Maggie ends up staying with the regiment, where she mends shirts, and cares for the captain's dog.

I liked John Coulter, he's a sergeant in the army, and he is impressed by Maggie, and her gumption, especially after she shows her metal by bringing ammunition to the men, when they are caught unawares without it.

Overall, this was a well written read, very well researched, and I loved how there were so many characters. The beginning was slower, and a bit on the choppy side, but once it got going, I really enjoyed it.
