    As the North reels under a series of unexpected defeats during the dark first year of the war, one man leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. Riveting and elegant as it is meticulously researched, March is an extraordinary novel woven out of the lore of American history.

    Paula says: "Great book, greatly narrated"
    "So Much to Consider"
    Overall

    This well-written story brought up so much to think about. I had never heard of contraband in this context and learned much about the treatment of slaves in the transitional period of the first part of the Civil War. The author's background as a war correspondent is very evident in the very bloody descriptions of the battles and the atrocities committed during raids.

    Very strong women were prominent in this story about an idealistic and very naive man. Each of them has to deal with the consequences of his impetuous actions. It is interesting that this is exactly the tendency that he is continually trying to squelch in his wife.

    This sequel also kept very true to the original book in its treatment of the characters.
