Giselle Roberts is a research associate in the department of history at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. She is the author of The Confederate Belle.
"Roberts' expert editing elegantly frames the material and draws out its significance, all while allowing her protagonists to tell their own stories. The surprising twists and turns remind us that the unique circumstances of individual lives can provide the most valuable insights into larger patterns of historical change." - Laura F. Edwards, Duke University"
