Read from March 21 to 28, 2012

I am a big fan of good historical fiction. It is probably my favorite genre and one of my favorite periods is the antebellum South. And as this book is a family saga from the pre-Civil War period, it was a good read for me. This is the first of a trilogy about this family and continues with the next one picking up during the war.

The characters were so compelling and their relationships were filled with drama including a lot of passion, revenge, friendship and a connection to each other, to the land and to their way of living. The story showed life in the South - both the good and the bad of it during these years.

I also enjoyed the interaction between and among the races and how, although there were clear delineations of how things should stand between them, it simply did not work that way. In the vein of a Gone with the Wind type of read, this book continues the story of the South on a random plantation in northern Georgia with life on the cusp of drastic change.
