Will definitely read more of this author's works.
The families introduced in this novel could hardly get any deeper into the South than living along the Gulf Coast. As the novel unfolds, the lives of these families are inextricably intertwined as they experience all the horrors that war creates. Southern Sons, Dixie Daughters reveals the deep, heartfelt commitment of these families toward their cause. And the ostracism that comes to those who dare to suggest that their cause might possibly fail.
John’s pacing throughout the book is brilliant as he knows the exact moment to leave the reader hanging at one exciting scene, and turn to open onto the next scene. Cliff hangers appear in nearly every chapter.
The vivid manner in which John plays out naval battles on the page, has the reader smelling the smoke and ducking for cover. These gripping scenes are exceeded only by his amazing knowledge of details. Details not only of the battles and those of the war itself, but details of all that goes on aboard a naval vessel in that day and age.
On a personal note, I learned more about the occupation of New Orleans by the Union forces that I had even learned in any history book.
If you are a lover of history, especially if you are a lover of Civil War history, this amazing novel will be a great addition to your digital library.
