Find this and other reviews at flashlightcommentary.Every once in a while I stumble over something different, something with a premise unlike anything I ve ever seen, something like Linda Bennett Pennell s Confederado do Norte I was familiar enough with the time period, but the setting and subject matter were fresh, original, exotic, and intriguing I was hooked in a heartbeat and eager to see where the story might go I ve not dedicated much study to the Reconstruction, but what little I know cen [...]

    3. A very engrossing story it follows a young girl from post Civil War U.S to Brazil So often we read about immigrants TO the United States Rarely do we read about immigrants Leaving the U.S It was intriguing to read about people settling elsewhere for a change, seeing Americans as the foreigners It s a heartbreaking tale too This young Mary loses her home, her nanny, her mother, her father, her home againd again A LOT of bad things happen to her She very admirable though with the way she stands up [...]

    4. A truly wonderful book.What life this, Mary Catherine s had It s she, the protagonist s journey beginning at the age of nine, heading to Brazil, an unknown place but filled with the promise of a new life Leaving behind is the Southern America who s lost in the Civil War What Mary Catherine faces in a decade or so of her young life is to most, unimaginable Her grit to survive no matter what is admirable, and something to emulate The author has done a fantastic work in every way I am not an expert [...]

    7. This sweeping saga is enthralling I had no idea, since I grew up in the North, that some residents of the Confederacy, in order to escape Reconstruction, decided to emigrate to South America instead The story of Mary Catherine begins when she s only nine, when the Civil War ends, and finishes at the outbreak of World War II The story is told in first person, and I immediately got caught up in the emotions of little Mary Catherine, who had to follow her parents on their somewhat questionable deci [...]

    8. A few pages into Confederado do Norte, I thought, I feel a bit like I m reading an Isabel Allende book, yet it was completely original, set in a historical backdrop I was unaware of until I read this book.I love epic stories about girls women overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles The author hooked me from the first pages, and the novel was action packed and emotionally charged I was forced to stop reading a number of times to get other things done, but the story kept calling to me from m [...]

    9. An outstanding historical novel, the story is told by an older Mary Catherine recounting her life as a child and young woman Read full review in the 2015 February issue of InD tale Magazine.
