Summary
In a departure from his mystery novels featuring Dave Robicheaux and Billy Bob Holland, Burke describes New Iberia, LA, during the Civil War and Reconstruction. Young Willie Burke (an ancestor of the author) and two friends join the Confederate army despite their doubts about some aspects of the Cause, while in New Iberia Abigail Dowling, a nurse from Massachusetts, struggles to act on her abolitionist beliefs. Now, in a startling and brilliantly successful departure, Burke has written a historical novel -- an epic tory of love, hate, and survival set against the tumultuous background of the Civil War and Reconstruction
Summary
Despite their misgivings about "the Cause," Willie Burke and his best friends, three young men from New Iberia, Louisiana, enlist in the Confederate Army and head off to war, in a novel drawn from the author's own family history
