    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"
    "I could not get into this book!"

    Would you try another book from John Jakes and/or Grover Gardner?

    No!


    What could John Jakes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the story line a little more interesting!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from North and South?

    All of the stuff about IRON!


    Any additional comments?

    I started this book with high hopes but only got to chapter 12. I was so bored with the story, I didn't like theme of the book, and I just couldn't connect with any characters. This really, really could have been a good book if the story line was just a little bit different!
