I’ll Be Looking at the Moon By Shirley Spires Baechtold In 1943, twelve year-old Maggie Beeler is determined to play a greater role in the war effort, and she is not above using her manipulative skills to make her schemes work. Maggie is instrumental in getting a church canteen started and, despite her mother's distrust of soldiers, she and her sister Annabel are allowed to help out. But the canteen doesn’t draw many soldiers, and Maggie feels that her efforts to make a difference have failed. While the war has brought significant changes to the small Kentucky town where the Beeler family lives, Maggie sees other changes that need to be made. In her world, racism is not a familiar concept, but she recognizes unfairness when she sees African Americans standing in the rain to buy tickets to a movie. When her German grandfather is accused of being a spy because he speaks with an accent, Maggie looks for a way to protest discrimination. In her spirited desire to help her country and her hometown, Maggie is a modern and engaging heroine. With an informative introduction and discussion questions, I’ll Be Looking at the Moon is ideal for use in schools.

Hunter Dun Leigh, heir to the largest cotton plantation in Georgia, is the quintessential Southern gentleman. Beautiful women vie for his love: Chantal de Valréas, his true love, whom he cannot marry but will never forget; Alezandra Whitfield, a Virginia blue blood; Lady Victoria, his aristocratic wife; and Sukie, his concubine. In the midst of his privileged existence, the War Between the States erupts, threatening Hunter's way of life. Hunter answers the South's call to arms while his brother, Ambrose, a staunch abolitionist, joins the North. When he meets Ambrose on the fields of Gettysburg, it is brother against brother in a contest that epitomizes the country's struggle. But as the guns fall silent and America struggles to recover, Hunter returns to Georgia and a world he no longer recognizes. Now he must begin rebuilding his life and his home. But will he ever find inner peace?
