“Rozier’s engaging collection . . . reminds us again that the world of that class was, in essence, a circle of kith and kin. . . . Each of their graves are marked by cold funeral monuments, but these pages, brimming with vitality, are a more fitting remembrance. Now, thanks to Rozier and the fortuitousness of history, the Birds will live in the imaginations of readers who pick up this wonderful book.”
Centered around a small plantation in the heart of middle Georgia's nineteenth-century cotton culture, The Granite Farm Letters send forth from the Civil War years not simply a record of clashing armies at the front or of the fraying fabric of life at home but also the correspondence of a close-knit family—the candid love and longing of husband and wife, the warm bonds of parents and children held firm through the turbulence of war.
