I wish I could give this amazing story more than 5 stars.
Mosher did an outstanding job of painting the Civil War period as the world gone mad.
Living vicariously via this book, even for the brief time of its reading consumption, can put one in a zen-like state.
The story becomes a bolt of lightning with intersecting branches and plots told by various characters.
If you enjoy fine art, or like reading fictionalized accounts of the lives of famous people, I think you would enjoy this book.
