If you scroll down through the past blogs you'll find a review of the book. The novel is set in 1862 in northern Virginia during the Civil War when some women served as spies and even dressed as soldiers often for months and years before they were detected. This story begins and ends in 1891 when Annie Cunningham, a former spy for the Union, is called to the deathbed of a woman whom she's never met.

Each Other is the story of Annie Cunningham and Warren Dodd, a Confederate Captain, who despite their differences have an attraction to one another that cannot be denied. Each Other probes the events of 1862 as they are reflected in history. Years of research by the author reveals that life is not black or white but shades of grey and the Civil War reveals the extreme challenges of creating and maintaining a free society on the broad scale and on the personal level the complications in creating a meaningful relationship. Both reflect the core of what it is to be human.

Each Other reflects a slower-paced time in history and the research embedded in the story shows us the world of the Fugitive Slave Act to the Emancipation Proclamation, the introduction of the documentation of war with photography and the celebration of Watch Night on December 31, 1862, 150 years ago. Offering fictionalized but historical scenes of the world in the mid-19th century, Each Other was created scene by scene,first visually and the author's job was to attempt an accurate interpretation of the stories that interweave with one another. It would make a great film! Read it and add your comments here!
