if you like united states history this is the book for you. great historical points on the civil war era, along with romance
A graphic, fast-paced amalgam of good, evil, love, lust, war, violence, and Americana.
John Jakes books are excellent. If you read the first North and South book, this book leads you right into t he second part :)
Haven't had a chance to read it, but looking forward to it. I've read it before and it's a very good book.
This is the second book of the series. The first focused on the turmoil before the civil war broke out. In this one we follow the Mains and Hazards throughout the war. I must warn you that hardly anything good happens to anyone,and if it does it is shortly taken away. This book is sad, but what book about war isn't? The author is able to weave just the right amount of history into the story without it being a too wearying.
