THE MIGHTY CONCLUSION TO AMERICA'S BEST-LOVED SAGA
GEORGE HAZARD -- He will discover that not even the terrors of the Civil War could exact the terrible price he'd pay in a country at peace but still ablaze with hatred.
MADELINE MAIN -- She faces the struggle to rebuild her life and her burned-out plantation -- without the man she loved.
CHARLES MAIN -- Escaping his past, he will seek a new beginning in the untamed West -- a land desolate, magnificent, and filled with danger.
THE CIVIL WAR IS OVER, BUT THE BATTLES OF THE HEART HAVE JUST BEGUN.
From America's master storyteller and writer of historical fiction comes the dramatic conclusion to the North and South saga. The Civil War has ended, but the Hazards and Mains have yet to face their greatest struggles. Even as the embers of old hatreds continue to burn in the heart of a nation torn apart by war, a new future in the West awaits a new generation of Americans seeking a life of their own -- and a place to call their own. Filled with all of the vivid drama, passion, and action that have made John Jakes the acclaimed master of historical fiction, Heaven and Hell is the tumultuous final chapter in one of the greatest epics of our time.
