I notice that reviewers like and are talking about a novel based on Carrie McGavock, scheduled for release in August, The Widow of the South. It seems to be making all the summer reading list previews.
The Widow McGavock collected the fallen around Franklin battlefield and buried 1,481 dead on her estate. The 100th anniversary of her death was commemorated in February.
The preorders have not taken hold, however, and the book's Amazon rank remains very low.
A Warner Books product. Hmmm, is this to be our next big-budget Civil War movie? Sales will tell.
