The book was terrific, my first historical fiction on the Civil War. The audiobook was read by Joe Morton who used a variety of really wonderful voices for the various characters. Definitely recommended.
This book is really good, unlike a lot of alternate history books. By winning the war, the South has to deal with slavery and racism themselves, rather than having it forced on them by a victorious North. What do they do? Read to find out.
