The master of historic fiction is back with a boisterous tale of General William T. Sherman's occupation of Georgia's coastal jewel. Jakes gets his facts straight and provides reader Ed Sala with plenty of room to create dozens of memorable characters, like the Lester girls; beautiful widow and rice plantation owner Sara; and her feisty 12-year-old daughter, Hattie. A journalist traveling with the Union Army, Stephen Hopewell, falls for Sara while Hattie engages in a wary alliance with General Sherman to rescue a kidnapped friend. If rousing tales of daring adventure are your cup of tea, this story fills to the brim. R.O. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
