Purgatory: A Novel of the Civil War

Purgatory: A Novel of the Civil War - Jeff Mann No one can say Jeff Mann can't write and write well. He always has command of his characters and takes the time to give them many layers that allows them to become real to the reader. That being said this was not an easy read due to the heavy subject matter. The pain everyone experienced and inflected on others to survive body and mind was at times overwhelming but honest. I kept thinking about giving up but again Mann maintained such a powerful situation compelled made me to continue to the ending.

BE warned I was glad I'd waited until I was ready for a heavy read or I would not have enjoyed this.
