I must say I was surprised as a christian I was not offended,but i'm not big on religion and his views on this are very similar to mine,the tale was studied a great deal befor writting,and was based alot on the KJV,and yes love is the key,as far as my view on the future, he has my vote,so listen with an open mind, and enjoy the ride,thank you,and God bless,oh I wouldn't recomend this for the young people it is very scarey,again I really enjoyed this one!

In a startling departure, James Lee Burke has written an epic story of love, hate, and survival set against the tumultuous background of the Civil War and Reconstruction. Booklist calls White Doves "an epic filmed in tight focus, taking us from secession to Reconstruction at an intensely personal level."

want to live in the war on american soil, you wil be apart of it if you listen to this tale when the south goes to fight the north,and slavery,is caught in the mist of it all, americans shed there blood, and why? we learn in school when we were chrildren of this war but never did a teacher put us there as Burke does, these days are to most forgotten or not told as they should be in truth,Burke leaves no stone unturned,and just like all his work you won't be able to put it down!
