    Who'd imagine that McCaig, winner of the Michael Shaara Award for Excellence in Civil War Fiction, would take the perspective of Mammy in a Gone with the Wind prequel authorized by the Margaret Mitchell Estate? Born in Saint Domingue and orphaned as a toddler by revolution, little Ruth is taken to Savannah by French émigrés and eventually finds herself raising one Scarlet O'Hara.
