Review

"Rich, colorful, and compelling."—John Barkham Reviews.

"Belva Plain doesn't know how not to write a best-seller."—Newsday.

From the Publisher

She was the exquisite daughter of a wealthy Jewish merchant. From a charmed girlhood in opulent New Orleans, she would be swept into the cataclysm of the Civil War. Forced to choose between her duties as a Southern wife and mother and her love for a forbidden man, a forbidden cause, Miriam Raphael is at the center of the whirlwind in a spellbinding novel of divided loyalties and divided hearts.

"Rich, colorful, and compelling." -- John Barkham Reviews.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Jackie Lombardi on February 7, 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book swept me into the passion, politics, and struggles of the Civil War era. What amazed me about this book, page after page, was Belva Plain's vivid choice of words. I felt moved by every scene, however significant, through the book. Belva knows her characters intimately and draws you into their hearts. I read paragraphs over and over again because I was so moved by Belva's ability to bring the 1800's South to life and the emotions of love, commitment, duty, religion, and heritage. This is a book that will be cherished on my shelf forever and I will surely re-read when I want to escape to power that it offers.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be extremely poignant, with well defined, strong convictions, right or wrong. Family loyalties in the face of extreme differing opinions.. overcomed inner strugles.. unfulfilled affairs of the heart.. the whole gamut of what makes a readable story with heart pounding and mind absorbing.. I will make a point of reading more of Ms Plain's books.

Belva Plain has created a story that is historically accurate and completely believable as you are reading it....but there is something that she just fails to capture in writing this book. As you are reading it you are not drawn to the characters and they really aren't deep characters at all but rather shallow and superficial. The plot, while interesting, is not a page turner and it is mostly concentrated on the love aspect. Also the ending in my opinion was rather disappointing.

I liked this book. It was our book club choice. It reminded me of a cross between GWTW & North & South in a Jewish version.

Great historical novel covering pre-civil war and civil war era. Enjoyed the character development. Belva Plain has always painted beautiful stories.
