Sarat Chestnut, born in Louisiana, is only six when the Second American Civil War breaks out in 2074. But even she knows that oil is outlawed, that Louisiana is half underwater, and that unmanned drones fill the sky. When her father is killed and her family is forced into Camp Patience for displaced persons, she begins to grow up shaped by her particular time and place. But not everyone at Camp Patience is who they claim to be. Eventually Sarat is befriended by a mysterious functionary, under whose influence she is turned into a deadly instrument of war. The decisions that she makes will have tremendous consequences not just for Sarat but for her family and her country, rippling through generations of strangers and kin alike.

    This is a fast read but a long and confusing read. What does that mean. It is well written but its not a easy story to follow. You are one place then another and their are geographical and historical references that I had no idea what they meant. As well I was very disappointed with the character and story development. The writer seemed to be obsessed with the future and the war so much that we did not get to know the characters or their thoughts or emotions. I just wanted more of a story and less war.
