Okay, I really liked the Black Flower by Howard Bahr.  I just started book two, The Year of Jubilo and have decided that so far it is a winner!  In anticipation of wanting to read the whole trilogy I just added The Judas Field: A Novel of the Civil War.

In my opinion, these books are a fascinating, well written and unforgettable accounting of life in the USA as impacted by the Civil War.  Book two is about a man who never wanted to be a soldier, coming home in defeat. 

Oh and thank you to spuddie for the recommendation!
