    A pleasing historical novel

    John Jakes has again written a historical novel that holds the reader¿s attention. The book begins with an introduction by the author giving a synopsis of the historical period the novel is about. There is even period music with Dulcimers and Banjos. Any student of history knows of Sherman¿s march to the sea. Savannah is about that march and of the hardships of a city caught in the path of war. It is set at Christmas time 1864. The main characters are a Yankie reporter named Stephen Hopewell, a Southern plantation owner Sara Lester and her daughter, Sara¿s friend, Miss V and a Yankie Sargent named Winks. These characters come together to prove that even in war and on opposite sides love conquers all. Winks doesn¿t like Negros and yet saves one from drowning. Sara, a widow, believes she should hate Yankies. Daughter, Hattie, finds growing up doesn¿t stop just because a war is going on. She even finds herself making demands of General Sherman himself. There were so many characters, that at times, it was hard to keep them all straight but as the novel went on, it became easier and was well worth listening to the novel. If you are a history buff, John Jakes is the writer for you.
