Though it takes listening almost to the last tape to get to the real suspense in this author's latest, Buck Schirner's performance makes the wait worthwhile. This is the story of a young Georgia man whose ancestor of the same name was a Confederate hero. At first, Roy Hill loses his pretty wife, then his job, then his father, and finally his 11-year-old son. When he joins a Civil War reenactment regiment to fill his time, he begins to be joined with the past. For example, Roy, who has never fired a gun, hits the bull's eye every time with his ancestor's carbine. Schirner's voice is deep and rich. When he adds a Southern drawl or twang, one is carried once again to the famous Chickamaga battlefield; one can almost hear the sabers rattle and the cannons thunder as this book accelerates to an exciting climax.
