A stirring Civil War story

The first pages of this book did not hold my attention. Jiles had a way of inserting historical facts that were interesting, but unnecessary and sometimes seemed out of context. Fortunately the story soon grabbed my attention. The personal tragedies of the Civil War must have been beyond belief. In this novel they become real. The main character, Adair Colley, overcomes the loss of home and family, harsh imprisonment and illness. It is a tribute to the strength of love and human endurance.
