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!!!

    "Riveting story brought to life by a master narrator"

    This second piece of the trilogy is every bit as riveting as North and South was, and the narrator is beyond wonderful! Highly recommended!

    Story
    "Lots of characters with poor judgement"

    The narrative is long and convoluted. Toward the end Mr Jakes may have become tired since his characters become shallow and sometimes downright stupid.
    There is also a tendency to do in inconvenient characters in a somewhat summary fashion.

    "Better Than Expected"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Love and War: Volume Two of the North and South Trilogy to be better than the print version?

    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.


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

    Grover Gardner did an outstanding job of bringing all the characters to life.


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

    When one of the main characters dies in the second book. In the last book when another vital character dies.

    "Great historical fiction!"

    John Jakes is one of the greatest historical writers of our time. This book gives insight into the turmoil during one of our country's most shameful times. It is so well written, I cried at times. Can't wait to listen to the next one!

    "Heartbreaking, but good."

    I am continually impressed with Jake's effort to present the war as it was from many different perspectives. Too often authors try to romanticize war, Jake's tells it as it is.

    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
