Thriller Military | Historical
Two young Southerners, friends despite their differing
political views and backgrounds, enlist in the 18th
Louisiana regiment of the Confederate Army: Robert Perry,
wealthy and privileged, and irreverent Willie Burke, the
son of Irish immigrants, face the trials of battle and
find redemption in the love of a passionate and committed
abolitionist, Abigail Downing, and in the courageous
struggle of Flower Jamison, a beautiful slave. Filled with
a cast of unforgettable characters, and penetrating a
landscape of shattering Civil War bloodshed as few novels
have, this epic from an American literary giant endows
readers with the gift of experiencing the past through new
eyes, while its timeless prose style -- at once luminous
and brutal -- ensures the legacy of this bloodiest of
conflicts will never be lost.
