Summary
"She calls herself Ash, but that's not her real name. She is a farmer's faithful wife, but she has left her husband to don the uniform of a Union soldier in the Civil War. Neverhome tells the harrowing story of Ash Thompson during the battle for the South. Through bloodshed and hysteria and heartbreak, she becomes a hero, a folk legend, a madwoman and a traitor to the American cause. Laird Hunt's dazzling new novel throws a light on the adventurous women who chose to fight instead of stay behind. It is also a mystery story: why did Ash leave and her husband stay? Why can she not return? What will she have to go through to make it back home? In gorgeous prose, Hunt's rebellious young heroine fights her way through history, and back home to her husband, and finally into our hearts."--from publisher's description

Summary
"I was to go and he was to stay," says Constance Thompson, recounting her decision to disguise herself as a man, leave her husband behind to tend their Indiana farm, and enlist in the Union Army as "Ash Thompson." Though Ash may be physically stronger than her spouse and more suited to military life, she finds the battlefield carnage tough to stomach. And that's before she's wounded in combat, captured by bounty hunters, imprisoned, and worse. Spare and compelling, Neverhome offers a different perspective on the American Civil War. -- Description by Gillian Speace
