Overview

As a transplanted northern boy, I never understood the motives for such commitment to sacrifi ce from the men and women of the South. I have now been granted a look into the depth of family, faith and community that drove this war for independence. Isaac’s House is more than just a good novel. It is a heartfelt love story within a love story of the Old South. Jane Bennett Gaddy is a true daughter of Mississippi, and she speaks from depths of devotion to her heritage with compassion in every line. She conveys the youthful call to war and post-war burden of the warriors, as well as the emotions of those on the home front, and her readers will experience carpetbaggers, scalawags, copperheads, Radical Republicans and a nation even more divided after the war.

    Highly recommended

    As a transplanted northern boy, I confess to never understanding the motives for such commitment to sacrifice of the men and women of the South. Now having read this book (also her "Mississippi Boys", which precedes this work in a trilogy), I have been granted a look into the depth of family, faith and community that drove this war for independence and state's rights.

    This is a heartfelt love story, within a love story of the Old South. Isaac's House is more than just a good novel and a comfortable read. Our author is obviously a true daughter of Mississippi, and speaks from depths of devotion to her heritage, with compassion in every line.

    Speaking as a Vietnam combat veteran, (volunteer) I am amazed at the empathy she feels describing the youthful call to war and post war burden of the warriors, as well as the emotion and effect on those maintaining the home front.

    Readers experience Reconstruction with carpetbaggers, scalawags, copperheads, Radical Republicans and a nation even more divided "after" the war.

    A must read book

    I have just finished reading Isaac's House, a marvelous written book. I continue to be amazed at how Jane Gaddy captures the flavor of the South during its turbulent years of war and early Reconstruction. Any true Southerner can identify with the characters, the setting, and the atmosphere of that time and day.
