In the middle years of her life, C+¬line Fr+¬maux Garcia recollected in this memoir her Louisiana childhood and growth into maturity--a tumultuous personal period that was transformed by violence as it was dominated by fear. The result is a detailed and sensitive portrait of a child's world of awe and wonder, color, and strife, in which the Civil War and its aftermath form the backdrop for conflict and rivalry within her French middle-class immigrant family.
