The history in this book is so wonderfully interwoven into the fiction that this reader had to Google Annie to find out whether some parts of the story were fact or fiction. It is a glorious tale taking place near Harper's Ferry, VA, before the Civil War
It can be labeled as both a historical romance and a war story. It is a tale of two cultures clashing. Both cultures considering themselves to be the ones who are sane, and the other insane and it was a dark time in our countries history.
Annie's War is steeped in the history of John Brown and the days before the Civil War or what is called in the south The War Between the States. It is both a romance and a test of character, for John Brown could turn out to be every bit of the bigot that many and still are today or he might prove himself more.
Mr. Walker writes a magnificent love story that some will delight in. Annie's War (part 1) has drawn this reader into the plot so deeply I am excited that book 2 is already available.
This is a book that will delight generations to come and teach us much about our country and ourselves.
Walker's meticulous research is evident throughout as is thought provoking characterizations, especially of John Brown. I sometimes became impatient with the ponderous musings and internal thoughts and plans of John Brown. I wanted to get on with Annie's romance. In my view, Annie's war is a lead to the insurrection that takes place in the rest of the series. It is a strong lead, however, in a very well written story that history lovers will enjoy. Robert Walker has a wondrous way with words.
Like any good work of fiction, this story is character driven, and that's the secret of it's success. Walker makes us care about his invented characters and more, he provides such deep insight into the men and women who really lived that the tension and conflict that grew in Harper's Ferry, VA become fascinating and real for us today.
It is no put-down to call this story a romance, it is that, but it is also so much more. In this first part of what promises to be a grand epic, Walker illustrates how world-changing events drive human actions, and how people in turn drive world-changing events. This is a book to be savored and enjoyed for both its artistry and its message.
