This book provides a unique glimpse into a life style of a family in the late 1800's. It becomes the truth that surpasses fiction, in the sense that this family is hardly representative. The book was birthed from genealogical research, and as such provides certain insights into the process of such research in general. The reader is involved in a real-life mystery surrounding a policy and approach of a government body - the Pension Board, and an individual's requests for a pension. But it expands past that - to a dysfunctional family and a tangled web. I would say this book will intrigue: anyone interested in genealogy anyone interested in the civil war anyone interested in human nature people who love to solve puzzles
