Clandestine missions. Clever, devious, daring. Passionately committed to a cause. During America's most divisive war, both the Union and Confederacy took advantage of brave and courageous women willing to adventurously support their causes. These female spies of the Civil War participated in the world's second-oldest profession-spying-a profession perilous in the extreme. The tales of female spies are filled with suspense, bravery, treachery, and trickery. They took enormous risks and achieved remarkable results-often in ways men could not do. As stated on the grave marker of Union spy Elizabeth Van Lew: "She risked everything that is dear to man-friends, fortune, comfort, health, life itself." Told with personality and pizzazz, author H. Donald Winkler uses primary Civil War sources such as memoirs, journals, letters, and newspaper articles, plus the latest in scholarly research, to make these incredible stories come alive.
Looks at the history's most daring women, including profiles of such figures as Underground Railroad heroine Harriet Tubman, CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson, and Chinese Revolution-era spy Eva Wu.
Ten years ago, during research for a genealogy class I was teaching, I discovered a little-known fact about a few brave women during the American Civil War era and was so intrigued, I began pursuing it further. Because I have always enjoyed the slow reveal of a mystery, I began an historical fiction in a mystery format, with the working title Restless Hearts. I could certainly empathize with the restless part; I thrive on change and adventure. A friend said she had the impression that this book would be a romance novel, so I renamed the book Why Weep and Wait? a quote from a letter written to a soldier by his wife. Since I took that title, the story just seemed to pour out of me, changing course often, as if someone else were writing it, because it needed to be told. Why Weep and Wait? could be true. Its set against the credible and true-to-life background of the Civil War, and extensive research went into the creation of the characters, whom I know youll come to admire and love. Id like to see it as a motion picture someday; believe me, its that compelling.
