    Two strangers, young men from Pennsylvania and South Carolina, meet on the way to West Point.... Thus begins this brilliant novel of antebellum America, spanning three generations and chronicling the lives and loves of two great family dynasties. The Hazards and the Mains are brought together in bonds of friendship and affection that neither jealousy nor violence can shatter - until a storm of events sunders the nation and brings the cataclysm of war!

    Parusski says: "Captivating novel of the Civil War"
    "The Book Hasn't Aged Well"

    Story

    I read all the John Jakes books many years ago and was interested in listening to the audio version of what is probably his most popular work. This book has not aged well, in fact, I see it now as borderline offensive. From the gallant slaveowners to Virgilia, an abolitionist, portrayed so negatively, the tone of the book really turns me off. Added to the fact is I really didn't enjoy the narrator.
