Overview

James and Kevin Bannon, the two brothers introduced in Look Away, continue to serve on opposing sides. James with the 4th Virginia Regiment and Kevin commanding a company in the 4th New Jersey. In their struggle to survive, their fear that one day they'd encounter each other on the battlefield was finally realized during the terrible conclusion of the third day at Gettysburg. Now, in the bloody aftermath of that titanic struggle, James and Kevin continue their brutal and bloody experience of war. From the dark and inconclusive days of the Mine Run Campaign in the fall of 1863, through the terrible "Forty Days" that took the two armies from the Wilderness to the gates of Petersburg, the brothers soldier on. James, with Lee's Army, watches as it slowly bleeds itself to death defending a state he has come to love. Kevin, living with the realization that James is serving in the army his nation is committed to destroy, marches with the Army of the Potomac as he alternates between a desperate search for James and his terrible burden as an officer, leading men he has grown to love into bloody battles that will claim their lives.

James and Kevin Bannon are willing to fight to the death in the name of victory. But Kevin's allegiance belongs to the Union, and James' to the Confederacy. Now, together with the women they love, the Bannon brothers must face the haunting truth about their past--and a fateful choice for the future. Targeted ads. HC: Simon & Schuster.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The latter years of the War Between the States come to fierce life in Coyle's sequel to Look Away (1995). Covering 1863-1865, the narrative continues the desperate chronicle of two Irish American brothers, James and Kevin Bannon, as they fight on opposing sides. James is a private in a Confederate infantry regiment; Kevin is a captain in a Union regiment. Both men are tired, embittered and hardened after enduring two years of suffering, sacrifice and danger through grueling campaigns and horrific battles. With death and fear as constant companions, they are battlefield enemies, but they also share the burdens of loss and pain. Estranged from their tyrannical father, they mourn for the girl they both loved and lost, each blaming the other for his suffering. As the war drags on, grinding down the lives and wills of both armies, James and Kevin grow ever more brutal, and increasingly fatalistic about their own chances for survival. From the Wilderness and Spotsylvania to Petersburg and Appomattox, Coyle renders the Civil War battlefields in stark and gripping fashion. Gone, however, are the subplots that added spice and intrigue to the earlier book. The story line here is simpler, leading the two brothers down a predictable path to forgiveness and redemption. (Sept.)
Library Journal
In this sequel to Look Away (LJ 4/15/96), Coyle plays out the saga of two estranged brothers, Kevin and James Bannon, against the last battles of the Civil War. The narrative alternates between Kevin, a captain in the 4th New Jersey, and James, a sergeant in the decimated 4th Virginia known as the Stonewall Brigade. Horror tales from the field hospital where Harriet Shields nurses wounded Union soldiers are juxtaposed with those of the decimated fields of the Virginia farm where Mary Beth McPhearson tries to keep her mother alive. Coyle is lawless in his portrayal of battlefield conditions and brilliant when illustrating the lives of individuals caught up in a devastating war that would not end. He never passes judgment on either side and renders as impartial a tale as is possible. The result is a story of courage, endurance, and sheer human willa testament to the American spirit. For all libraries. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/15/96.]Jo Ann Vicarel, Cleveland Heights-University Heights P.L., Ohio
Theresa Ducato
In this tale of two brothers fighting on opposite sides of the Civil War, a story that began in "Look Away", Coyle now brings the masterful saga to a triumphant conclusion. James Bannon is fighting with the Confederate Army, his brother, Kevin, with the Union forces. Their brave--and individual--exploits are played out on bloody battlefields from Gettysburg to Richmond. As a drummer taps out the soft, mellow notes of evening retreat, James thinks of his brother: Where is he? Is he alive? Will they both survive to return to their loved ones? Coyle skillfully portrays a country torn by war, gripped in a nightmare of killing. If at times the sympathetic but predictable characters sound like comtemporary soldiers fighting in the Gulf War, the novel neverthless captures a piece of history wherein men cannot lay their duty and passions aside.
Kirkus Reviews
The concluding work in Coyle's splendid two-volume series on America's Civil War.

Look Away (1995) followed the star-crossed Bannon brothers, James (a gentleman ranker in Virginia's Stonewall Brigade) and Kevin (a captain with the 4th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry), from their troubled but privileged youth in the Garden State through a brief face-to-face encounter at Gettysburg. The narrative at hand (which provides background enough to stand alone) picks up the parallel stories of James and Kevin after Gettysburg and tracks them through the endgame of a horrific conflict that proves more an endurance contest than a noble cause. Although James and Kevin never meet again on a battlefield, they are unwitting antagonists in many of the Eastern Theater's bloodiest campaigns. Among other near-miss collisions, James marches with the ragtag forces assembled by Jubal Early to menace Washington in mid-1864, while Kevin, still weak from wounds, commands a motley company of convalescents and Army clerks hastily armed to defend the seat of federal government. In their few respites from close-quarters combat, the brothers take comfort in two fine women, Kevin with Harriet Shields (a headstrong lass who, against her family's wishes, has gone south to nurse Union casualties) and James with Mary Beth McPherson (sister of a slain comrade). The fortunes of war throw Harriet and Mary Beth together when the latter's homestead is requisitioned as a front-line aid station in the wake of a Yankee rout of rebel troops near Winchester, Va. They soon part, and hostilities grind on until the North captures the Confederate capital of Richmond, where Mary Beth has gone to work in a munitions factory. Shortly thereafter, James (hopeful that the nation's suffering can now lead to national reconciliation) lays down his arms at Appomattox and heads North with Mary Beth, whom he's married, for a bittersweet reunion with Kevin and Harriet.

A haunting, human-scale account of a cruel war.

From Barnes & Noble
This sequel to the best-selling Look Away follows the story of James and Kevin Bannon, brothers who took opposing sides in the Civil War. From the aftermath of Gettysburg to the fall of Richmond, the brothers soldier on, tormented by the realization that one may have to kill the other some day, yet driven by the hope that they will be soon reunited. "Coyle puts you in the ranks with a musket in your hand and bullets whizzing around your ears."--Stephen Coonts.
