Thirteen-year-old Lonzo knows that Papa thinks he's slow compared to his brothers. When the Civil War breaks out and throws Culpeper, Virginia, into chaos, Papa sends Lonzo to live with his aunt Mariah on the other side of the Deep Cut, the railroad gorge that runs through the rocky hills south of Culpeper. Meanwhile Lonzo's best friend and protector, cousin Ferdy, secretly enlists in the Confederate army.

Feeling abandoned by the two most important males in his life-his father and cousin—Lonzo struggles to understand war, especially when it comes roaring into his aunt's inn. Yankee raids, battles, and enemy occupation test Lonzo in a way he's never been tested before. Finally, in a rare act of bravery, he proves to his father that he's every bit as competent as his brothers. But in the end, regardless of his father's expectations, Lonzo has discovered his own sense of self-worth.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* In this fine first novel, based partly on Spain's family history, quiet, sensitive Lonzo, 13 when the story begins, endures the tragedy that the Civil War brings to his small Virginia village. Culpeper, strategically situated between Richmond and Washington, teems with military activity soon after the war begins. After his uncle's favorite cousin and pal, Ferdy, join the Confederates, Lonzo is sent to help his aunt Mariah run her inn. When Yankee soldiers take up residence in the inn and elsewhere around town, civilians suffer humiliation and near-starvation. Readers won't soon forget Spain's gripping wartime anecdotes, as when Lonzo desperately races to thwart his grief-stricken aunt's plot to murder Yankees. His success finally earns the approval of his father, who has always considered him "slow." Well-wrought characters, vivid historical details, and nuanced themes, such as Lonzo's evolving opinions about both slavery and Yankees, combine to tell a powerful story about the impact of the Civil War on ordinary lives. For another glimpse of children enduring in the embattled South, steer readers to Kathleen Ernst's Hearts of Stone (2006). Anne O'Malley
