Two small-town Alabama boys, Aleks and Adam, grow up in the midst of Civil War reenactments at the Fort, but when they discover a time window in the backyard of The Griggs House, their real-life 1860s adventure begins.
When history comes alive, what will our boys do?
“Slavich’s strongest suit is her vivid descriptions. Of one battlefield scene, she writes: “The air smelled of death, [sic] clouds of smoke blocked the sun, and Aleks saw shadows leap across the field…Carrion circled the battlefield, waiting for their feast.”
“One of the book’s most powerful aspects concerns the boys’ disagreements over slavery.”
