From the celebrated author of Rubyfruit  Jungle and Bingo comes a stirring novel of the Civil War, a tale of true love and mistaken identity. Brimming with colorful characters and vivid settings, High Hearts is Rita Mae Brown at her most ambitious and entertaining. April 12, 1861. Bright, gutsy and young, Geneva Chatfield marries Nash Hart in Albemarle County, Virginia, the  same day Fort Sumter's guns fire the start of the Civil War. Five days later she loses him as Nash joins the Confederate Army. Geneva, who is known as the best rider since Light Horse Harry Lee, cuts her hair, dons a uniform, enlists as "Jimmy Chatfield," then rides off to be with her beloved Nash. But sensitive Nash recoils in horror from the violence of war, while Geneva is invigorated by the chase and the fight. Can she be all the man her husband isn't? She'll sure as hell try.  But there is a complication, and his name is Major "Mars" Vickers. This macho major, to his own shock and amazement, finds himself inexplicably attracted to the young soldier named "Jimmy."  And this is only the beginning of a novel that moves with sureness and grace from the ferocity of battle to the struggle on the homefront, and brings passion and sly humor to a story of dawning love.  High Hearts is a penetrating, delightful and sweeping tale that gives fresh life to a fascinating time.… (mais)

Civil war, Geneva joins calvary, is better soldier than her husband Nash ( )
  ritaer | May 10, 2020 |
Synopsis: Geneva adores Nash. When he goes off to fight in the Civil War, she dresses as a boy and enlists, as well. Throughout the fighting performs better than her husband, both mentally and physically. She is drawn to her commanding officer, but only treats him with respect. Eventually her brother, her father and her husband are killed. Meanwhile back at home, her mother changes from a withdrawn, negative person to one with purpose.
Review: This is a historically accurate book, written with passion and depth. ( )

An oldie, but still worth reading. Good dialogs, funny choice of words, and NOT dikey (which is what some people seemed to think).

Still adore Rita Mae Brown ( )
