Fortitude is a novel by Carrie Dalby. This is my first novel by this author.
At the start of the Spanish- American war, Claire O’Farrel travels to Florida to help with the wounded.
Racial tensions arises causing her to go to the hospital tents for colored people.
Will Claire be able to overcome to prejudices and find a happy life for herself.
I usually don’t read historical novels but with this being my first, I did enjoy it. The pace was a little slow at first but eventually picked up.
For anyone looking for something different to read, I recommend it.
