    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.

    Linda Lou McCall says: "UNNECESSARILY RACIAL (AS OPPOSED TO "RACIST")"
    "Real life during the Civil War"

    Where does Love and War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one is so very enjoyable because it gives an inside view of life during this critical period of history while keeping historic events in order.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love and War?

    Haven't finished it yet.


    Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He has a way of distinguishing his voice to make different characters come to life even in a rapid conversation

    Story

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Melinda says: "Amazing Undertaking--Good Book"

    If you could sum up Wild in three words, what would they be?

    captivating, honest and enticing


    Any additional comments?

    I did not want it to end I wanted her to keep walking and sharing her experiences.
