Love this book. It is a great read and very empowering to see a woman be her own person.

I was disappointed to find that this is a diary of a woman who had some medical background in that she read the books of her husband doctor in New England, but did NOT serve as a doctor during the Civil War or after. She was a teacher of the freed black people. The diary mentions only once a smidgeon of wartime casualties. It's also amazing to me how she could be allowed to teach given her inumerable spelling errors. I had no compassion for her as she assumed everything in the South was free for the taking by people from the North and black people. She shows no guilt in living in homes of displaced Southern people or in stealing their belongings. I was overall disappointed.
