Publisher's Summary

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.

With his impeccable research and unfailing devotion to the historical record, John Jakes offers his most enthralling and enduring tale yet.

    "Very good story --- but not equal to vol. one!"

    Though this second volume was very good it seemed to fall short of the first. There is a great deal of unnecessary dialog that I felt was to NO point or purpose in the story! The aforementioned seemed to make the story/book a bit to looooooong.

    Irrespective of the above comments I GENUINLY look FORWARD to volume three!!!

    Story
    "Is History Repeating Itself?"

    I loved both North and South books and the way the story evolves from two boys being raised in two different worlds within one country, who eventually meet at West Point and develop a friendship that will be tested repeatedly throughout their lives. How events leading up to the Civil War shape and affect each of them and every person in their lives and the different choices they make and paths they take both before and during the war weave this into an intricate and detailed telling of a volatile time in our country's history that finally reaches it's breaking point. For me, there were times when the detail was swallowing me up and I was becoming disconnected, particularly in the second volume, but these segments would pass and I was caught up once again.

    While this trilogy has been around for over thirty years, it is almost erie that I chose to finally absorb their contents at a time when our country is as divided now as it was then. Will history repeat itself?

    Loved this book but the audio and kindle book weren't in sync so I couldn't read and listen at the same time

    Story
    "Family turmoil during the civil war."
    What did you love best about Love and War: Volume Two of the North and South Trilogy?

    The time period was well researched and the author managed to put key characters in key places during the war.


    Which character – as performed by Grover Gardner – was your favorite?

    You cannot go wrong with Grover Gardner as the narrator. Charles Main was my favorite character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of Orry Main was completely unexpected and disappointing. I would like to have seen how he developed post war but it goes to show you that death can come for anyone at any time.


    Any additional comments?

    If your only experience with this story was the t.v. mini series you owe it to yourself to read the story, as the author intended.

    "GRIPPING"

    This series has given me an outlook on our history that I have felt but could never put into words. Mr Jakes does that for me. Thank you
