March by Geraldine Brooks
"This is what I write to her: The clouds tonight embossed the sky."
What do you write friends and family from the battlefield? Do you tell them what you're experiencing? what you've seen? Or do you try to gloss over the horrors? Mr. March is a chaplain in the Union army during the Civil War.
