    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"

    Would you listen to North and South again? Why?

    No not again but I am not a listen a second time kind of guy. I will listen to the rest of the Jakes Trilogy though.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the characters as well as the way the book gives the reader (listener) a feel for the times. How the North viewed the South and vice versa


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

    Not that I remember


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Already been done

    (245)

    In the summer of 1963, nine-year-old spitfire Starla Claudelle runs away from her strict grandmother's Mississippi home. Starla hasn't seen her momma since she was three - that's when Lulu left for Nashville to become a famous singer. If she can get to Nashville and find her momma, then all that she promised will come true: Lulu will be a star. Daddy will come to live in Nashville, too. And her family will be whole and perfect.

    Story
    Would you listen to Whistling Past the Graveyard again? Why?

    I am not much for listening to books a second time but I read more of Susan Crandall's work. I did not want this book to end. I want the characters to be an addition to my friends and family. They are wonderful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the characters. They are real. The dialogue is thoughtful and fun.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book will make you laugh, cry, feel proud, feel sad and most of all make you want it to go on and on.
