About the book:
Sisters of Shiloh is historical fiction about two sisters who disguise themselves as men to enlist in the Confederate Army. Libby, the youngest sister, lost her husband in one of the battles and swears vengeance on the Yankees. Josephine, the older sister, joins the army in order to protect her sister. While in the army, Josephine starts to fall in love with one of the other soldiers while Libby becomes more delusional with each battle fought.
