Martha Hall Kelly, “Sunflower Sisters”

Interview moderated by Ashley Hasty, creator of the book review website HastyBookList.com

Martha Hall Kelly’s million-copy bestselling historical novel “Lilac Girls” introduced readers to Caroline Ferriday. Now, in “Sunflower Sisters,” Kelly tells the story of Ferriday’s ancestor Georgeanna Woolsey, a Union nurse during the Civil War whose calling leads her to cross paths with Jemma, a young enslaved girl conscripted into the army. Inspired by true accounts, “Sunflower Sisters” provides a vivid, detailed look at the Civil War experience, from the barbaric and inhumane plantations, to the horrors of the battlefield.
