Saturday Night Fun has taken a little twist from the genealogical topics and has made way to get to know each of us a little better outside of the family research. Here is tonite’s challenge:

Bedlam South is written by Mark Grisham and David Donaldson. Since I love history and heard this had a Civil War background, I was excited about reading this novel.
