Publisher's Summary

Move over, Scarlett O'Hara! It's New England, 1861, and the troubles in the southern states seem a long way off for Jack Edgerton, the spoiled son of a prominent Vermont family. Howver, when he meets and falls in love with Aaron Johnson, the sexy son of a slave on the run from Virginia, Edgerton's world is turned upside down.
Separated by circumstances, the lovers pursue each other through the escalating madness of the Civil War and both find themselves forced to choose sides. After a series of outrageous adventures - including steamy woodland trysts and an impromptu jailhouse orgy that briefly reconciles the warring parties - they are reunited in the Shenandoah Valley in the autumn of 1864 - where the conflict is about to come to a bloody, burning climax.

So so

It just didn't do that much for me. I'm a heterosexual female who loves gay erotica. But this story didn't work for me, and I used it as my trial for this author. So I won't be going back for seconds via any of his other stories. I found this book to be mediocre, and the narrator did what he could with what he had. It's not much I can say about it. It's a story with a little meaning, which is great; there's some substance there. And sex certainly occurs. But the sex acts weren't romantic enough for my taste, which I guess would be my main critique. But someone else might find the way the sexual encounters were written as great. Enuf said. Take it or leave it.
