9780007497966: Rebel (The Starbuck Chronicles)

A Powerful and evocative story of the civil war's
first battle and the men who fought it

When Richmond landowner Washington Faulconer snatches young Nate Starbuck from the grip of a Yankee-hating mob, Nate is both grateful and awed by his idealistic rescuer. Turning his back forever on the life he left in Boston, Nate agrees to join the newly formed Flaulconer's Legion, even though it means fighting against his native North.

But Nate's dilemma is only one of many within the Legion. Faulconer's own son cannot bring himself to fight, while his daughter's cheating fiancé plots for control of the family fortune. As they come together to march into battle, the men are prepared to start a war ... but they aren't ready for how they -- and the nation -- will be forever changed by the oaths they have sworn for their beloved South.

About the Author:

BERNARD CORNWELL is the author of the acclaimed New York Times bestselling Saxon Tales series, which includes The Last Kingdom, The Pale Horseman, Lords of the North, Sword Song, The Burning Land, Death of Kings, The Pagan Lord, and, most recently, The Empty Throne and Warriors of the Storm, and which serves as the basis for the hit television series The Last Kingdom. He lives with his wife on Cape Cod and in Charleston, South Carolina.

From AudioFile:

Cornwell, who is best known for his Richard Sharpe series, begins a new series, which takes place during the War Between the States. Nathaniel Starbuck is the son of a well-known Boston abolitionist preacher. Starbuck finds himself stuck in Virginia in April 1861 and becomes a Rebel, but more out of rebellion against his father than out of belief in states' rights. Actor Hayward Morse displays his versatile vocal skills by giving almost every character a distinct voice. His depiction of the battle scenes brings out the horror, confusion and excitement of the dramatic narrative. His enthusiasm for this work is apparent, and he does well in bringing out its comic elements. This is a joy for those who enjoy adventure. M.T.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
