:From bestselling author Stephanie Grace Whitson comes the story of two women-Missouri neighbors drawn into the heart of the Civil War from opposite sides.

As the mistress of her brother's Missouri plantation, Miss Elizabeth Blair has learned to play her part as the perfect hostess-and to not ask questions about her brother Walker's business affairs. When Walker's political aspirations lead him to organize the Wildwood Guard in support of the Confederacy-and to offer his plantation as the center of operations-Libbie must gracefully manage a house with officers in residence and soldiers camped on the lawn. But she is truly put to the test as the war draws ever closer to her doorstep, and she must find a way to protect the people who depend on her.

Libbie's closest neighbor, Irish immigrant Maggie Malone, wants no part of the war either. She's content to let "the Americans" settle their differences-until her brothers join Missouri's Irish Brigade, and one of their names shows up on a list of injured soldiers. Desperate for news, Maggie sets off for Boonville, where the Federal army is camped. There she quickly captures the attention of Sergeant John Coulter, who grows to admire her skill and dedication. When circumstances force Maggie to remain with the brigade, she discovers that there's a lot a good woman can do to help the men she has come to think of as "her boys." She doesn't see herself as the kind of woman a man would court, but John Coulter is determined to convince her otherwise.

Impressive as Always
5 stars By Iola, Jul 31 2015
I'm always impressed by Stephanie Grace Whitson's books, by her writing, by her characters, by her historical accuracy, and by the way she manages to weave those things together to always produce a novel worth reading. I admit, Daughter of the Regiment wasn't the easiest novel to get in to, at least for me. 

Maggie Malone is left alone on the family farm in Little Dixie, Missouri, after her two younger brothers go off to fight for the Union. She goes off to search for them after raiders destroy the farm and she realises the local sheriff-a Confederate supporter-isn't exactly proactive about rounding up the miscreants.

Maggie manages to make a place for herself in the regiment, and what follows is a fascinating insight into a different side of army life. There's also an unlikely friendship with a planation belle, a love interest, and a subplot which addresses deeper issues of faith, love and family. The writing is excellent, and I very much enjoyed the story. Recommended for fans of historical fiction.
