Publisher's Summary

The continuing saga of one family trapped in the crucible of the Civil War.

Following the defeat of Confederate forces at Chattanooga in November 1863, the battered Rebel army, including a bitter Cory Brannon, retreats slowly toward Atlanta. A large Union army led by Gen. William Sherman is marching to the coastal city of Savannah, laying waste to the territory through which it passes. Meanwhile, the Brannon family farm in Culpeper County, Virginia, is now behind enemy lines, the great plantation house in ruins. Titus is off fighting with Mosby's Rangers and Henry has been removed as sheriff. To everyone's surprise, Cordelia is courted by one of the Union officers, a Yankee she finds herself unable to hate. As Cory is trapped in Savannah, surrounded by Sherman's marauding hordes, despair grips the Confederacy. Fractured and defeated at every turn, the nation asks itself how much longer it can continue to fight.

Find out what happens to the Brannon family in the rest of the Civil War Battle Series.

    "Another Good Story"

    Once again the author does a nice job of weaving several character threads together to make a good story -- some in Texas and others in South Dakota with the union army in 1964/1865 as the climax to the war takes place. There is description of the fall of Atlant as well as Savannah. One aspect of this series that I enjoy is that the author details battles in the war that are not necessarily as well known. A good example in this story is the battle of Nashville/Frankiln which crushed Hood's army.

    "Things are not going well for the South"

    Sherman is making his way to Savannah and Titus is not a happy chappy and making life as miserable as he can for everyone he runs into. The rest of the Brannon's are making the best of things but its clear that unless there is a miracle the Confederacy is doomed. The way James Reasoner has conveyed the sense of hopelessness is well done - he doesn't go for the dramatics but the whole narrative has a cast of sadness throughout it lightened only by the recounting of life in Texas.

    Lloyd James continues to excel and there is no end to his accents. Such a good narrator.
