Review by: Jacqueline Bryant on Nov. 17, 2011 :
I found this novel to be an entertaining and generally authentic portrait of our divided nation set in 1863 Confederate South. This work weaves fact and fiction together highlighting an array of historical figures, but also shows you what the people wore, what they drank and ate, and the dynamics of relationships of the time. The stark contrast of innocence and corruption, affluence and poverty, tolerance and hatred are depicted in the memorable characters. This compelling story comes to a heartwarming yet bittersweet conclusion that does not disappoint. I recommend this book- an excellent story.
