My Dearest Cecilia is a book only for the most hopeless of romantics, and even as one, even I found it unrealistic and contrived. Sherman and Cecilia, a Southern belle from Georgia, meet at a dance at West Point before the Civil War, fall immediately in love with each other, and then spend the rest of their lives pining for each other. Even Romeo and Juliet are not as star-crossed as these two, who are thwarted by everything from family intervention to being on opposing sides of the Civil War. They only got to be together a few times, but apparently this was enough to sustain them through their unhappy marriages and the rest of their lives. The author does not indicate anywhere whether there is any truth to the story at all,, but it did interest me enough to make me wonder. As any reader of "Gone With the Wond knows , all Georgians hated Sherman, but he did supposedly spare Cecilia on his famous march to the sea.
