Set against the vivid backdrop of the Civil War, this is a timeless tale of friends and enemies, anguish and adventure."Dear Private John Meadows: My name is Joshua Loring.... My pa got killed at Fredericksburg so I don't much like Rebs. I'm joining the army as soon as I can.... I just hope the war doesn't end before I get my chance". And so begins the life-changing relationship between Joshua, a twelve-year-old from Massachusetts, and his unlikely pen pal, a lonely fourteen-year-old Confederate soldier imprisoned on George's Island. Joshua sends the letter at his uncle's request, although he's sure there isn't a Reb in the world he'd like. The events that follow force Joshua to confront his deepest feelings about the enemy and lead to the greatest adventure of his life. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
