Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A riveting evocation of the Civil War, drawn from the true family history of "America's best novelist" (The Denver Post), JAMES LEE BURKE

1861. 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.

Synopsis:

Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling author James Lee Burke crafts a wondrous Civil War drama of three young men at our nation's crossroads--as well as at their own. The story of three best friends from Louisiana who enlist in the Confederate Army and set off to war, White Doves at Morning features Willie Burke, the character based on Burke's own great, great uncle, and his friendship with an attractive and bright young slave whom he illegally teaches to read. Set in a time of upheaval that affected all men and women, White Doves at Morning is a rich love story and a masterpiece of historical fiction.
