Mary Mehan Awake is the poignant sequel to The Dreams of Mairhe Mehan. Mairhe, who was a nurse during the Civil War, now goes by her American name, Mary, and she has left Washington DC to work for a bird photographer in New York. Mary is beginning to emerge from the numbness that was a defense against the horrors of the war. The romance between Mary and Henry, a musician deafened by his stint in the war, is sweet and well done.
