Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen by Sarah Bird

Cathy Williams was born and raised as a slave in Missouri. Near the end of the Civil War, she becomes a cook for the Union Army. Naturally tall and athletic, Cathy decides to hide her gender and become a Buffalo Soldier in the U.S. Calvary after the Civil War. This powerful and fictionalized true story is totally engaging and fulfilling. Cathy is such a “huge” character that she literally steps off the page! I loved this story of a strong and capable woman who is aware of her roots and will never forget that she is the “daughter of a daughter of a queen!” Highly recommended for lovers of historical fiction!

Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen by Sarah Bird will be available September 4, 2018 from St. Martin’s Press. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
