eclectic woman, May 31, 2013 (view all comments by eclectic woman)
This is a pretty good story told from a fascinating point of view. This is supposed to be a generally true historical novel with a double love story added for interest. It covers the time from just before Lee's surrender at the end of the Civil War thru the Reconstruction Period from the points of view of a "Radical Republican" high up in congress and a Southern family in South Carolina. It caught my interest and I finished it in one night. Definitely a keeper.
Every story has two sides; here is the other side - definitely not what I was taught in school....

This book was the basis of the acclaimed silent film Birth of A Nation. Warning, it was written in 1905 and therefore not PC in some of the racial portrials.
