It will make you want to read more about this woman who had a bad marriage, a civil war, and poverty thrust upon her and remained her own person throughout.

Obviously a difficult topic. Made me wonder why civil war reenactments are popular. This book mmakes you think.

I loved Cold Mountain, and there were moments that I like Varina, but overall it was tedious.

Charles Frazier’s writing is pure joy. His characters are presented with such depth, empathy, and respect simply for who they are/were, how their lives mattered regardless of station in another difficult chapter of our country’s history. Certainly anyone with even a passing interest in the Civil War would enjoy this book but as with “Cold Mountain,” that’s not a prerequisite.

Charles Frazier, at his wonderful best, brings us Varina, a southern belle who is also a smart, savvy woman, strong willed and loyal. We follow Varina from her youth into her old age as she lives through the most devastating period of America's history. This is a book to treasure, and recommend to friends and family. As with his other historical novels, I consider Varina a national treasure.
