This one broke the camel's back. I enjoyed the first three alright, I am a huge civil war buff, but the failings of the series got to be too much. I know that ninety percent of civil war fiction is from the southern point of view, but this became extreme! Every single northerner is awful. no redeeming qualities at all. Plus we finally get a loyal southerner on the form of the erstwhile bookish and ridiculed Nathan, a character that I thought gave the series greatness (for including

The fourth in a series of ten books. This book looks into the life of the imaginary Southern Brennon family, and the rolls of the Brennon men in the Confederate army. This series gives a great look at the Civil War, had occurred, what could have or should have happened and all from a southern point of view. For those readers who enjoy historical novels; this is an essential series. For those readers interested in the Civil War, it is also an essential series. Always remember, far too often ...more

I am still listening at about the half way point of this clunker, but once I finish penning this will move on to something (almost anything) else. Characters and their dialog seem very wooden. Perhaps day-to-day Civil War life was like this - but I detected an awful lot of 20th century thinking in penning. And I just experienced this jarring transition from Louisiana to Virginia that makes me wonder at the author's motivation. I don't think I'll be back to this series without serious coaxing.

As with the prior 3 books, this one was good. Focusing on multiple members of the family - however it seemed like Reasoner cut away too long from Cory's story. It picks up again in the 5th book right away however.

This installment of the Civil War series has been most enjoyable. New characters have been introduced of which the subtly intelligent Pie Jones was my favorite. All family members were included in significant parts of the book.

Good start to learn more about the battle and Civil War. Enough detail to create drama and respect for the courage of the combatants.
