I was absolutely entranced by this beautifully written novel. I am a fan of Civil War novels and have read quite a few - and "The Ones They Left Behind" is one of the most uniquely told stories that I have had the pleasure to read. Author Antonio Elmaleh obviously did a great amount of research to create a tale that captures the after-math of the Civil War and how the people of both the North and the South were affected in such drastically different ways. But what I really appreciated in this book is that Elmaleh not only presents a captivating historical novel of a heart-wrenching journey, he intertwines a passionate love story that grabs the reader by the heart. The characters are unforgettable and the resolution of Hickenlooper's quest is satisfying and memorable. I join such esteemed authors as Thomas Steinbeck and Pulitzer-Prize winning Civil War author James McPherson in highly recommending "The Ones They Left Behind." Historical novel fans will appreciate this book as well as readers who seek out great literature.
