Two strangers, young men from

Thus begins this brilliant novel of antebellum America, spanning three

dynasties. The Hazards and the Mains are brought together in

can shatter -- until a storm of events sunders the nation and brings
the cataclysm of war!

Love and War
From the first Union rout in
Virginia to the last tragic moments of surrender, here is a gigantic
five-year panorama of the Civil War! Hostilities divide the
Hazards and the Mains, testing them with loyalties more powerful than
family ties. While soldiers from both families clash on the battlefields
of Bull Run, Fredericksburg and Antietam, in intrigue-ridden
Washington and Richmond, strong-willed men and beautiful women defend
their principles with their lives ... or satisfy illicit cravings with
schemes that could destroy friends and enemies alike!
"Massive, lusty, highly readable,.. a graphic, fast-paced amalgam of good, evil, love,
lust, war, violence, and Americana." -- The Washington Post Book World

Heaven and Hell
The war ends, but there is no peace for the Hazards and the Mains
in a nation still inflamed with bitterness and hatred. The defeated
South teems with schemers and carpetbaggers ... and the North has no
place for scarred veterans such as Charles Main, who struggles to
rebuild his life in the Plains cavalry, only to be stalked by a
murderous nemesis seeking revenge against both families. A gripping
portrait of Reconstruction America, and a fitting conclusion to the
saga of two mighty dynasties!
"If you've read North and South and Love and War, you're going
to love Heaven and Hell." -- San Francisco Chronicle
"A heartwarming conclusion to a story that you don't want to
see end." -- The State (Columbia SC)
