An epic tale of love and liberation in the Civil War
"The story unfolds at a brilliant pace, wielding tools like suspense, foreshadowing, flashbacks, an omnipresent narrator, and humor to good effect. Its prose is engaging and emotive, from the introduction of the boys to their battle to survive the war....

"Three Brothers from Virginia shows us how much humanity has grown and the dark place we’ve come from, reminding us not to repeat history and to fight for every person’s freedom, no matter how different they appear. Prepare to be immersed in different engaging scenes, like the war scenes—with the smoke, fog, and bullets—that make you feel like you’re right in the middle of the battle. This historical book is informative and rife with interesting conundrums, suspense, and unpredictable events. It would appeal to readers who love elaborate plots with a lot going on."
-San Franscicso Book Review. (see full review)
“…the adventures of the brothers will keep readers curious about whether they will ever get back together or if forces beyond their control will keep them separated forever. [A] look at a cataclysmic time in American history.”
"Holding the book together is the author's attention to character and the stron historical authenticity of many episodes, especially the New York Draft riots, and the reaction of Southerners, white and black, to the twisted cirucmstances of their lives."
