From Publishers Weekly:

This massive, panoramic novel, 10 years in the making and clearly a product of the heart, deserves high ranking among the many historical novels about the American Civil War. Writing as a Southerner, Rising is less concerned with the politics of the war, or even the great moral issue of slavery, than with the emotions war arouses, especially at that point in which pain or horror threaten not simply one's sense of honor but the very integrity of the self. The narrative centers on two proud Kentucky families joined by marriage, the Hunts and the Morgans, and in particular on John Hunt Morgan, the dashing Confederate cavalry officer whose Raiders almost turned the tide of the war. Told in tight, elegant prose, the story is full of vivid portrayals of actual people like President Davis, Robert E. Lee and St. Leger Grenfel, a British officer who contributed significantly to Morgan's successes, as well as the numerous Hunt-Morgan clan, most notably Morgan's second wife. It's also dense with actual events, of which the bloody battle of Shiloh is perhaps the most graphic, and Morgan's escape from his Northern captors perhaps being the most exciting.

From Library Journal:

Rising's sprawling epic of the Civil War follows the career of cavalryman John Hunt Morgan. When Kentucky refused to secede from the Union, Morgan formed a companyMorgan's Raidersto fight for the Confederacy. Driven from his home by federal troops, Morgan never gave up hope of regaining Kentucky for the Confederacy. Although overlong and complex, with some peripheral characters introduced to no apparent purpose, the novel does succeed in creating a moving portrait of Morgan, forcibly separated from the home he desperately loved. Strong emphasis on military campaigns may make parts of the novel heavy going for those with little Civil War background, although promised maps (not seen) might help. Recommended where there is strong interest in serious historical fiction. Beth Ann Mills, New Rochelle P.L., N.Y.
