Wow – I am waaaay behind on my blogging to our really awful fall with unexpected deaths in both my and my husband’s families.
However, here I am to start off the parade of reviews in my “saved drafts” section, with the YA historical novel: “Alias Dragonfly”. I scored this free from Net Galley.
In this novel, Civil War teen Maggie Bradford leaves New Hampshire with her father and goes to stay with her cranky aunt in Washington, DC. The war surrounds them and Maggie finds herself involved with intrigue by becoming part of the famous Pinkerton Detective Agency by working as a Union spy. Maggie finds romance as well as mystery, and the book ends by leaving you hanging and waiting for more. It appears to be part of a series.
Highly recommended for YA Civil War reading and for those, like me, who just love historical fiction of this period!
Thanks, Net Galley and Bell Bridge Books for my copy!
