Stonewall based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Stonewall is a novel covering Jackson's life from early childhood in what is now West Virginia through his death following the victory at Chancellorsville. The novel focuses on his spiritual development and uses his interaction with the Junkin sisters as a plot line. Jackson married one sister, who died in childbirth, and, according to this novel, later courted her elder sister. The book is full of anachronisms (does no one use an editor anymore, or are the editors simply incompetent?). Jackson, by all accounts, was a strange bird. This novel tries to grind off those rough edges, to the detriment of history.
