9781518840029: After Bondage and War: An Historic Fiction Novel

NEW FIRST EDITON, SECOND PRINTING (ver.2) This emotional and compelling story brings us together with two men from different backgrounds, who search together for happiness and their place in the world in the aftermath of the Civil War. Entwined in the history of the early Antebellum period, the Civil War and Reconstruction periods and the aftermath, it traces the lives of Josiah Ashford, a slave from Mississippi and David Wexley, a Union soldier from Maryland with a passion for social justice who charged naively into war to fight cruel injustice and authority. The story will resonate in the hearts and minds of anyone who believes that there is always hope in the darkest of times. Josiah Ashford struggled through his early life as a slave in Missouri and Savannah Oaks plantation near Natchez, Mississippi. Marcus Taylor grew up in Savannah, Georgia as a privileged dilettante. Rebecca Stanley from Charleston desired a grand life full of refinement and social graces. David Wexley sailed the Atlantic coast in topsail schooners as a merchant marine, wrote in a journal sad lonely private thoughts, was impassioned for social justice and charged naively into war with young friends to fight cruel injustice and authority. This historical fiction novel traces the lives of two generations of fictional characters through the early antebellum period, the Civil War and Reconstruction periods and its aftermath, while they struggled and prevailed through their tumultuous historical period. It ends around 1900. The characters resonate with thoughts and feelings we all share today - frustration, hopelessness, loneliness, spiritual longing, friendship, and love.

Buchbeschreibung Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Buchzustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.NEW FIRST EDITON, SECOND PRINTING (ver.2) About The Story The historical fiction novel covers the 19th century from the early antebellum period, through the Civil War and Reconstruction periods and the aftermath. It traces the lives of two generations of fictional characters who struggled and prevailed through their tumultuous historical period. Many historical fiction novels are written as nearly pure fictional stories with just a touch of historical context. Others are written with purely non-fiction historical figures and events with just a touch of imagination as to how the real figures would have behaved during their real lives. In After Bondage and War, I tried to strike a balance between these differing approaches. While this might not totally satisfy all readers, it will have something of value for every reader. - David Claire Jennings, author Slavery was a stain on our country. It deeply falsified our founding ideals and was a longstanding shame for us in the eyes of the world. The Civil War was a horrific price to pay to abolish it. The devastation to our country and problems that followed would continue for another hundred years. With our care and concern for all the American people, we believe After Bondage and War to be a sensitive and important statement about this period of history and the people who lived through it. Not since Stephen Crane s Red Badge of Courage, has this story been told with such emotional intensity and pathos. I feel we have treated it with a broader reach, dimension and poignancy. Through its personal recounting of history and its very human characters, it is our intention that our readers will feel this way also. - Joan Austin, editor.
