Involving and fascinating
This is a powerfully evocative, compelling story of life around the time of the American Civil War. Its protagonists come from varying backgrounds, but all are involved in the march of history as the US emerges as a unifying country while the strains and conflicts of the Old World still ripple onwards and outwards. Some of the content is graphically violent and viscerally disturbing, but nothing is gratuitous and O'Connor is a master wordsmith. He can craft a sentence or a phrase to live long in the reader's memory.
