The Taylor’s Civil War Review

August 26, 2011 at 9:06 am Leave a comment

The Taylor’s Civil War was written by Lowell F. Volk. It is a great book that has the Civil Was as its background, but there is much more to the story line than the war. It is a story told by the point of view of members of the Taylor family and those individuals they interact with. The main character is Luke, the oldest son, who we see mature from a young farm boy to a young man shaped by the war and the responsibilities of caring for his family.

I found it hard to put this book down. I wanted to find out what happened next and it kept me captivated throughout the story lines. There was much more to this movie, it had suspense, war and sprinkled with a little romance. It had several touching moments and the characters and their lives could easily have been written about a true life family during the Civil War era. When someone died, I found myself either sad (it was a character I had grown to care about) or relieved (the enemy was shot).

I feel this book is a great read for anyone, especially if they like the Civil War era.

Dorrance Publishing Company, Inc. is the online bookstore where you can purchase this book.
