A Basket Brigade Christmas by Various Authors(review by Cathy)

A Basket Brigade

Three charming stories of the residents of Decatur, Illinois, who came together to meet the medical trains during the civil war.
The stories main characters are women that became involved with The Basket Brigade which is a group of ladies that provided food, treats and comfort to the soldiers.

They were well written stories and one of the many aspects I enjoyed was that the stories were interwoven.
I liked the fact that I could continue to see how the characters still had a presence in the towns selfless caring of the soldiers.

The authors were all new to me, but I’d certainly read more of their work as they took such care to being authentic to the time period, even to the recipes that are included.

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest.
