Tried and True by Mary Connealy

It's hard being something that you are not is something that Kylie has to live with every day.  She and her sisters had to fight in the civil war to please their father and in memory of their brother.  Because of this service, they are able to use their service time against the time they have to spend on their land to get a homestead credit.  While her sisters have slipped nicely into this role, Kylie would rather be doing more civilized things.
While trying to fix her roof, she gets found out when the land agent Aaron stops by.  She tries to play it off, but eventually comes clean.  I liked how she tried to please everyone, but eventually wound up doing what she needed for herself.  I don't know what it would have been like to have gone through what she did, but it was interesting to find out.  I look forward to finding out what will happen with the family next.
I received this book free from the publisher for review.
