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.

This Trilogy is a must read for anyone who enjoys American History and particularly the Civil War era. The characters are very well developed and interesting. Loved this series of books and wish it did not end at 3. Grover Gardner does an excellent job of narrating. Each character was brought to life by Grover. I would recommend all 3 books to a friend because this series shows a side of the Civil War that we do not see a lot of. The devastation of the South near the end of the war.
Charles - He experienced so much in all three books
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.
