Alice Green


Alice Green is Emma’s younger sister. Frivolous and naïve, she is more focused on pretty dresses than the harsh realities of war. Alice has no idea that her secret beau, Confederate soldier Tom Fairfax, is a patient in their family hotel turned hospital. Her awareness of the truth and the extent of his psychological trauma is a sudden and harsh awakening to the horrors of war. As her sister Emma finds purpose at the Union hospital, young Alice will become the most extreme Confederate loyalist of them all.

AnnaSophia on Alice:

I think the reality of war and the hardship Alice endures and the heartbreaks she encounters sort of sober her up. I think the suddenness of everything just pushes her to the edge. She is on the brink of womanhood without realizing it. She’s trying to find her place in the world, and in a way, she sets herself up to fail by looking at the world as she wants to see it.
