Paula Tarnapol Whitacre’s A Civil Life in an Uncivil Time: Julia Wilbur’s Struggle for Purpose takes us back 150 years to illustrate the all-too-human tale of a woman’s fight for justice during the Civil War. Julia Wilbur spent many years in Alexandria, VA aiding escaped slaves and Union soldiers, as well as being heavily involved with the women’s suffrage movement. Tarnapol’s depiction has been called “rich” and “beautifully written.”
