Review: REDEMPTION FALLS by Joseph O’Connor

Books and Other Stuff reviewed Redemption Falls by Joseph O’Connor for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

Two women play an important part in the telling of the novel. A former slave, Elizabeth Longstreet, lived in his home; she later moved to Liberia. O’Connor married the very rich socialite, Lucia-Cruz Rodriguez y Ortega McLelland.

You need to read this novel continuously. There are many characters, telling the story from their viewpoints, so that it’s easy to lose your place.

I learned about many aspects of the Civil War that I didn’t learn about in school.
