My Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

I love fiction that has historical events woven into the fabric of the story. Bachelor Buttons is a story like that. Kathleen Maher has done a superb job of researching this Civil War novella of a love story taking place in the middle of the of the New York City draft riots. You won’t want to put it down.
