"The novel, touching, honest, brutal, funny, sad and sometimes glorious, recounts the fall of an era as seen through the eyes of Owen Wright, a colonel in his thirties, a soldier in the Army of the Confederacy. This is his personal accounting for his feelings and actions during six months of his life: Time spent in winter camp in 1862, time spent at home with his family-- where he falls in love again, this time with a widow-girl of nineteen whom he fears he cannot have and cannot forget-- and time spent at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg leading his regiment of mountain soldiers. John Ehle (1925-2018) was born in Asheville, North Carolina.
