This book is so engrossing that I read it a second time immediately after finishing it. Through finely drawn characters and a marvelous economy of style, the author brings the Civil War home with immediacy. He explores all strata of society, and is especially effective in developing subleties in differing relationships between the races. If I could write a book about the Civil War, this is the one I would want to write, word for word.

Better than Cold Mountain, if you enjoy historical fiction from this era, you must read this book. It not only has fascinating and interesting characters, but the graphics of battle and intrigues in strategy make wonderful reading.
