Charles Frazier'' Varina'',It is a historical novel concerning Jefferson Davis's second wife.Suggest that before one reads this that they do research on Mrs.Davis.Doing this helps in enjoying this novel.Also research into Thomas Davis.JD's older brother.would be helpful.Varina came from North Ms.,Davis was from the Delta region.There is a little black boy whom history has overlooked as to Varina and he who plays a interesting part in the novel.I am wonding what everyone thinks about historical fiction books. Whether its say the killer angles or North and South.
Or Historical fiction like Turtledove books.
I read one of the book by Nwet Gingrish (yes its spelled terribly) and it was mehhh. Tryed reading a Turtledove book about the British attacking the north during the war then South steping in to take out the British.
For the most part I find them mehhh or just boring. One exception was a fiction book about Shiloh and I think it was by Shelby Foot called Shiloh.
I stay with non-fiction but does anyone have book recommendations, or has anyone writen a book?
