    The Main and Hazard families clash on and off the Civil War’s battlefields as they grapple with the violent realities of a divided nation. America's master storyteller continues his reign with Love and War, a story steeped in passion and betrayal. With the Confederate and Union armies furiously fighting, the once-steadfast bond between the Main and Hazard families continues to be tested. From opposite sides of the conflict, they face heartache and triumph on the frontlines as they fight for the future of the nation and their loved ones.

    Hunter says: "The second is as good as the first!!!"
    "The Civil War brought to us on a personal level."

    Story
    What did you love best about Love and War?

    Love and War is the dark part of the North and South Trilogy... the storyline is during the deepest parts of the War and therefore has the burden of telling that story.
    I appreciate the use of the Horse as a metaphor for the mind numbing losses that took place during the conflict.. it is hard to imagine the wide scope of such an immense happening in our history... but to feel the pain of the loss of your closest companion and most valued and irreplaceable tool brings the loss to a level that can be felt even in such a small increment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story at this part shows well the struggle of Love ... love of family.. love of our ideals... right or wrong as they may be... love of friends.. and love of our ways... again... right or wrong.
    We also see the destruction and the encroching upon our thought processes of
    Evil.. how subtle a game can be played when good men do not stand.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No!!! This is a story that I needed to think about as it unfolds... the depths of the lessons that our history has to impart to us it too widespread to gulp. It needs to be savored and pondered over to actually learn anything.
    If we cannot learn from our past......


    Any additional comments?

    Start with North and South and take the journey. It is worth the travel.
