An Epic Romance.
Set in a time of terrible cruelty and injustice this exceptional work of fiction pulls no punches. The full gamut of human emotion is experienced while the reader is carried away on a romantic adventure filled with love and devotion as well as hate and pain. It is obvious that the book is very well researched and the author does a marvelous job immersing the reader in the feel of the Civil War period. The characters are rich in detail and very realistic. The book also has some very interesting philosophical/theological discussion that enhances the story and does not distract from the well crafted plot. I highly recommend this book.
