In SISTERS OF THE CONFEDERACY (3) by Lauraine Snelling, Jesselynn Highwood and her tattered troop are traversing across war-torn Missouri, bent on reaching Independence to join a wagon train to Oregon in 1863. But in order to do so, Jesselynn must disguise herself as a manwell, a boy to be exact.

While Ms. Snelling's book has some nice traits, they are lost in excessive detail rather than the story itself, which takes a while to get interesting. Also, the book seems to pick up where the first in the series ended and leaves the reader hanging.
