This book is part of the TREDITION CLASSICS series. The creators of this series are united by passion for literature and driven by the intention of making all public domain books available in printed format again - worldwide. At tredition we believe that a great book never goes out of style. Several mostly non-profit literature projects provide content to tredition. To support their good work, tredition donates a portion of the proceeds from each sold copy. As a reader of a TREDITION CLASSICS book, you support our mission to save many of the amazing works of world literature from oblivion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but nonetheless touching June 19 2012
By MamaSylvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
eBook downloaded free from Gutenberg. Short collection of short pieces, set during the Civil War. Besides the title piece, The King of Clubs and the Queen of Hearts, The Cross On the Old Church Tower, and The Death of John (labelled a true story) are included.

Although quite dated, this collection will remind the reader of Alcott's skill at tearjerkers. The Death of John seems to be an expanded version of a story included in Hospital Sketches. Keep a box of kleenex handy when reading this! Spelling and grammar were acceptable, formatting was occasionally a little wonky but not to the point that it distracted me from the story.
3.0 out of 5 stars Short storys Jan. 30 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3 short stories, one of which is a republishing of part of hospital sketches. The main soldier in each story dies. Luckily for the most part not as preachy as some of her other works.
