From America's master storyteller and writer of historical fiction comes the dramatic conclusion to the North and South saga.
The Civil War has ended, but the Hazards and Mains have yet to face their greatest struggles. Even as the embers of old hatreds continue to burn in the heart of a nation torn apart by war, a new future in the West awaits a new generation of Americans seeking a life of their own - and a place to call their own.
Filled with all of the vivid drama, passion, and action that have made John Jakes the acclaimed master of historical fiction, Heaven and Hell is the tumultuous final chapter in one of the greatest epics of our time.

One great ending.
The overall story arcs.
I have. All are excellent.
All were very good, no, great.
A must-have for any fans of historical fiction.
loved all 3 and tho I know it's a novel, see much truth in the message and wish . . .
not sure if follow up book mentioned in epilogue had been written but will search
Of course this is a graphic study of the aftermath of the civil war. Very ugly. Just be aware that violence described done to women and children is not spared in any sense what so ever. This novel includes a gratuitous antagonist with a vendetta against the main character family. A waste of time in my opinion. I like historical fiction and this added antagonist is just plain raunchy violence in the story.
Most enjoyable end to the trilogy. Criticism that the book leaned to heavily towards Charles and his life are unfounded. If you enjoyed the first two books, you will enjoy this one.

I'm sad that this tale is over as it was outstanding. I'm going to miss the adventures of the Hazard and Main families.
Yes, great reader
When Constance was killed. Sorry if I spoil a moment
No extreme reaction
I like a long series. This story kept me engaged 90% of the time and the narrator did not have any quirks that made it difficult to listen. He wasn't as animated as I prefer, but he did an acceptable job. I would recommend this for someone who enjoys long series and doesn't mind if it slows down from time to time.
