About the Author:

John Jakes is the bestselling author of Charleston, the Kent Family Chronicles, the North and South trilogy, On Secret Service, California Gold, Homeland, and American Dreams. Descended from a soldier of the Virginia Continental Line who fought in the American Revolution, Jakes is one of today’s most distinguished authors of historical fiction.

From AudioFile:

The Christmas of 1864 wasn't a merry one in Savannah, as the Union forces took control of the Confederate city. Tensions simmered between the Union forces and the defiant Southerners. Against this backdrop, widowed Sara Lester and her 12-year-old daughter, Hattie, take refuge in a friend's Savannah home, only to have a rough encounter with rogue Union foragers. The incident angers young Hattie and offends the Union occupiers, leading the girl to a confrontation with William Tecumseh Sherman. Dylan Baker, who knows his way around a Southern accent, puts a bit of exaggeration in his accents and characterizations to highlight the human comedy in this wartime conflict. His approach helps reveal the central characters in both the harsh light of a tense situation and, later, in the softer, warmer glow befitting a holiday season.
