Summary

It is 1865: the American Civil War is ending. Eliza Duane Mulvey sets out from Lafayette, Louisiana, the town her mother Mary Duane called home. Alone, she walks across a devastated country in search of a youngster she has not seen in four years. One of the hundred thousand children drawn into the war, his fate has been mysterious and will prove extraordinary.

It’s a walk that will have consequences for many seemingly unconnected survivors: a love-struck cartographer, a beautiful Latina poetess, rebel guerrilla Johnny Thunders, runaway slave Grace McNeile, and the mercurial revolutionary Giacomo O’Keefe, who commanded a brigade of Irish immigrants in the Union Army and is now governor of a Western wilderness where nothing is as it seems.

Outstanding Work of Literature

Exquisite writing and structure, albeit experimental and possibly not to everyone's taste. I loved it.

Did not Like!

I didn't get through the first CD disc & threw out the next 9 discs of this title without burning the rest . From now on I will listen to the book before I burn it to disc.
