Loved these books when I first read them and also enjoyed the television series so am looking forward to reading them again on my Kindle. Great story about the fortunes of two families on opposite sides in the American Civil War. Highly recommend these books if you like adventure and romance, a great read!
A very gripping saga of two families set in the time of the US civil war. Well written and hard to put down. As an Englishman, I find it is an easy way to learn more about the history of this period in the states.
The three books together form an excellent basis to learn about the American Civil War as they are full of factual stories and anecdotes. At the same time they are great fun to read as the reader follows the drama taking place in two families - once started I could not put the books down!
Saw the TV series of North & South and Love & War Years ago and they were good but the books are even better. J R R Tolkien wrote the masterpiece The Lord of the Rings and as a work these books equal that, the shear detail of events, as they actually historically happened, and how they affect the Characters, (from the slaves in the South,to the Slave owners, and those from the South opposed to "(The Peculiar Institution) and of course those in the North including those with Southern sympathies is truly absorbing. The pace of the tale never stands still and as a result I am finding I simply don't want to put the book down.....Well worth the money and would advise anyone to buy the trilogy if you can afford it at the time as you will find you buy one and you simply must then buy the second. Not got to Heaven & Hell yet (the third book) but I fully expect it to prove a great ending.
