    Glory Road is a great book for "buffs" or beginners who know nothing about the Civil War. The Civil War is a central part of the American experience, and Bruce Catton's books are an excellent way to understand the war. I highly recommend tracking down a used copy. Enjoyable reading of perhaps Heinlein’s best book I first read “Glory Road” in when it was serialized in “The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction”.

      Glory Road is the dirt road where the three women live and work and where much of the actual book takes place.

(Marybeth Mayhew Whalen, author of Only Ever Her and co-founder of She Reads, for Glory Road) Southern women’s fiction, stand-alone novel. Audiobook length: approximat words. Includes discussion questions for book clubs.
