Shura, known for compelling books such as The Josie Gambit (1986), never quite tames the many fictional and historical details of this docudrama. While an afterword sets the records straight (few details of Anna Blair Etheridge's life are actually known; this is ""fictionalized biography""), readers are likely to be misled by the subtitle. Even as fiction, this high-minded tribute to a courageous young nurse, remembered by many Civil War soldiers as working tirelessly on the front lines, is dull. Author: Shura, Mary Francis.

The lack of a map is unfortunate, as many places and battles are mentioned but location is not clear. Adequate as historical fiction, but not as biography.

I think that the book Gentle Annie is a very good book! I like how the author explains Annie's character. I also thought that the news about Frank was very shocking! I did think the author left us hanging at the end. I like how the book is historical fiction, but it is based on a girl named Anna B. Etheridge. I think this book on a 1 to 10 scale would be an 8. There are more settings in this book, but the main setting is in Alexandria, Virginia. Annie reminds me of Clara Barton because she was a civil war nurse for the union, and so is Annie. I think this book is good for people who love reading about the Civil War. I also think that this book is good for teachers. If teachers want an interesting book to share with their class this is the right book. This book might be a little hard for some students. I like this book for 2 reasons. First, I love reading! Second, I am very interested in civil war books. When Annie was with the troops she was happy. She always marched in the front line with the soldiers. When a soldier was wounded or died she always cried. I wonder if there are anymore biographies about Anna B. Etheridge. I would really like to read more about her!

THIS BOOK IS COOL!

I read this several times when I was ten/eleven/twelve and found the story well told and interesting. I learned some history from it, and was impressed by Annie's heroism and selfless service, as well as those she worked with. I think I may have kept going back to it, though, because I found the ending unsatisfactory. I still felt lost and restless, like Annie could never have real peace and a place of her own again.
The characters are well portrayed, the battles and storyline are clear and easy to follow, and Annie's emotions and decisions are relateable. I appreciated the humanness of it all. The story inspired me to do more research on the Civil War and the people involved in it.

Someone should read this book because it is exciting and a fun adventure. Someone should not read this book if they don't like adventures and excitement in a story.This book was a pretty good book that is why I rated it a 4.It was not an awesome book because it got boring and I wanted to put it down at times, but I did not because I was determined to get done and finish the book so I kept on reading. If you are a reader who likes action and people who die then you should read this book. My favorite part was when Annie went in to battle being brave. My favorite character was Annie because she was so brave and determined.

I liked the book because of the intensity of the setting with the bloody and brutal battles. They explain how bad the wounds were on the soldiers so well that I could almost see them in my mind when I read. When she was just seventeen she was as a nurse. She was ready to serve her country. Annie is very interested in history and what is happening around the world. She was a strong, independent girl that wanted to be treated like a soldier and be in the front lines of the war. I would rate this book from a scale 1 - 10 an 8 because it leaves us hanging at the end a little. I suggest this book to 4th - 6th graders that like the Civil War.

This book was a good book because it had details about the character my favirote part was when Annie and Sarah whent into a fancy house with all diffrent kinds of rich things. People should read this book because its about the Civil War and about Gentle Annie which it tells you many diffrent things about our history and also you can learn. My favorite character was Will because he is a funny character and he does different things in the book . A history reader should read this book because it might be interesting for that reader like me I like to read about history.

"Gentle Annie" is the best biography that I've ever read! If you want to get this, don't wait. It's the best for really sensitive people though. It touches people. It also makes them cry a bit, but in a good way. I loved this book.

It's a really good book and I found it to be interesting.It's a very dramatic book and gave me alot of details to better help me understand what it must of been like to be of that time in history.
The book gave text about how a young girl could take part in a war back then. The book could have used more detail in exsplaning a young girls life for young readers.
