In The Scheme of Things, $2.99 Is a Great Price for a Book...and The Civil War is a fascinating subject and fertile ground for historical novels...I read this til the last page, turned the page...and there was no more. It was as if the author decided she was done writing that day and hit 'submit' rather than 'save'. To each his own...but this book convinced me to save my $$ and buy one good book rather than three poorly-written ones. Harsh? Yes. Honest? Absolutely!

This book is not only poorly written but also very badly in need of more research. A Civil War era story where the characters speak in the "slang" of today is just one clue. Other problems are long, descriptive pages that lead nowhere and major characters that are "killed off" with little or no reason or closure. There is some wonderful fiction based on Civil War history. This book does not make the grade.

The beginning of the book was a bit goofy. I LOVED the story of the lives of the extended family during the civil war and the changing attitudes toward slavery. The ending was very poor. I think Ms. Marsh is a captivating author; I'm not sure if she's written others, but I would try them.

I rated this book as high as I could go. it was a wonderful entertaining story about the south, before the war started, the beginning of the troubles and afterward, and our heroine showed great strength during the terrible times of a white south during the uprising and how terrible the negro were treated. What compassion and love her family showed to those who worked for them. A great love story with twists and turns at ever chapter. Highly recommend this wonderful story. It brought to the reader a view of the south during those times and how the people were loyal to each other in spite of race, color and creed.

Up until 5:30 am finishing this book... (even with the grammatical, spelling, and incomplete sentences), turned the page and BAM! no more story. In the life of one of the characters it was like she became tired of writing about him and ended his life. I just think there should have been less of some things and more of other things. I hope there is a sequel so I can finish the story.

Reading A Civil War was a serious departure from my usual reading. Since it was recommended by a friend, I felt I needed to read it. I put it off a little bit because I was sure it was going to be difficult to get through--assuming there would be no detectives, no murder, no cloak and dagger. Surprise! I started it and could hardly put it down. I loved the characters (and find that I am looking forward to Ms. Marsh's sequel), and it was entertaining and gripping enough to satisfy the hard-boiled P.I. in me. My initial question was, "Why the title--A Civil War?" since the story began in the present. I was hooked in just a few pages, and there was mystery enough for me to find out what the connection was between the main characters. The rest of the novel was the explanation--and the revelation. Being a southern woman, born in Florida and a resident all my life, I felt a certain relationship with the characters and grew very fond of all of them--except Charles Avery. I don't think being southern is any kind of prerequisite to loving this book. I won't reveal any of the details of the story. No spoilers, here. You can read the publisher's and author's descriptions of the novel, but, from me, you will have to settle for the recommendation that you read this wonderful book! Let me say one more thing. I do not like romance; I've never been into historical fiction. This book doesn't fall into the category of "romance," although there are some tender moments and the real love of families. I found myself totally immersed in the time period, so I guess I have to change my mind about historical fiction. Oh, and if you are already a fan of historical novels, this one is bound to keep you turning the pages!

I really enjoyed this book. It told a different side of the war. All the characters were so warm and the author gave one a chance to see that not all people are bad. I would highly recommend this book, a good read.

This could use some editing for grammatical errors but the story was very very well put together. I loved this book and would definitely read again.
