Amanda C. Gable

Atlanta author Amanda Gable has written a richly imagined and heartwarming new novel, The Confederate General Rides North. It’s a whimsical, totally original story about an endearing young heroine, 11-year-old Katherine McDonnell, a precocious Civil War buff, and her touching relationship with her mother. It’s set in Georgia in the 1960s, and we’re predicting it will emerge as one of the finest debut novels of the year! Ms. Gable came to read at the library on August 11, 2009.
