Product description


"Deft characterizations...resonant prose...Vividly evocative and steeped in American folkways: more great work from a master storyteller."

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

"Jiles brings her singular voice to the young couple's travails, her written word as lyrical and musical as Simon's bow raking over his strings. Loyal Jiles readers...will adore the author's latest masterpiece."

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

"Jiles's limber tale satisfies with welcome splashes of comedy and romance."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Narrator Grover Gardner and poet-novelist Paulette Jiles are a dazzling combination...It's historical fiction of the highest order, transporting the listener to a distant culture and making it both exotic and piercingly familiar...Gardner brings excitement and experience to creating the sounds and voices of Simon's world as he strives against liars, grifters, and bullies to win freedom and love with an indentured immigrant girl. Pairing high-voltage adventure with passages of exquisitely beautiful writing, Gardner and Jiles leave you cheering. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award."

-- "AudioFile"

5.0 out of 5 stars Civil War era comes to life
Reviewed in Australia on 18 November 2020
This is an unusual story which has been carefully researched by Paulette Jiles to bring the American Civil War era back to life with detailed representations of characters, culture, life and death. Very similar to Cold Mountain, we follow the trials and triumphs of young Simon who is almost anti heroic but certainly very authentically rendered. The best fiction, as Conrad said, puts you there on the spot or in the moment as we now say. This novel ranks with Jiles other excellent historical works: a totally engaging read.
