Format: Kindle Edition
Most of us read historical fiction to be transported to another life, another time, and another place. We read to experience circumstances we are not likely to encounter in our personal lives. Casey Clabough's new novel, Confederado, provides all of the above. A love story set at the end of the Civil War, the action takes a surprising turn when the book's hero, Alvis Stevens, suffers an injustice and flees to Brazil, making Confederado a Civil War story with a new colonialist dimension. It is a compelling read full of well-researched detail and beautiful imagery, such as "Alvis drank from the mountainside spring at dawn and watched as the early morning sun, like some great knife of light, gradually pared away the edges of darkness and shadow in the hollows below." And Clabough hits originals notes as well, such as this description: "Her father, solemn yet tender of heart, had raised her with an attentiveness that was neither doting nor overbearing. He had been all her world, to the point that she alternately called Mama and Papa until she was four years old."
Although we know how the Civil War ended, we don't know all the stories of love and loss, courage and triumph that were the result of the conflict. Confederado, well- plotted and full of excellent writing, is destined to be one more favorite read for fans of southern literature.

Format: Paperback
Confederado: A Novel of the Americas is an exciting story, what we might call a page-turner. Clabough has drawn a must-read portrait for all Virginians and all Southerners and all those interested in the aftermath of the War Between the States. That the novel is well written is an added pleasure, for wading through typos, grammatical errors, and misspellings ruins many a good book. A main philosophical thread concerns Alvis' growing understanding of his role in war. The journey of Alvis, as he flees from the Union soldiers and from Virginia, could be a fabulous movie, as well as a good read. I would cast Brad Pitt as Alvis and hope that Clint Eastwood would direct.

Author Clabough has shown me a different side of life after the American Civil War with compelling characters and graphic pictures of the difficult life lived on two continents, neither hospitable to the Confederate hero. Reminiscent of McCullough's "Heaven and Hell", Clabough reminds us that Appomattox Court House ends hostilities officially, but countless private wars begin. Alvis Stevens does not get a hero's welcome; his saga into the wilds of Brazil draws us into his life or death struggle to rebuild his life and recover his love, the beautiful Lavinia.

Kudos to Mr. Clabough, a fellow Lynchburg writer and teacher, on his first novel. Write on!
