I read it and did not feel that women really act like that in such a situation and for some reason I can't explain, I couldn't connect with the widow as she was described. I'm certain the real widow was different, felt differently and thought differently than described. I also found her husband rather strange.

As odd as it may seem, I felt that none other than Scarlett O'Hara was a more believable character. I can better relate to her, a spoiled rich young woman  who feels the world revolves around her. I also related better to Rhett Butler, the surly, arrogant, worldly blockade runner and war profiteer tahn I did to the master of Carnton. 

When it comes to the Battle of Franklin, I guess I really prefer non-fiction accounts.
