Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Set in Virginia during the Civil War and a century beyond, this novel by the award-winning author of YELLOW BIRDS explores the brutal legacy of violence and exploitation in American society. When war arrives, the master of Beauvais, Anthony Levallios, foresees that dominion in a new America will be measured not in acres of tobacco under cultivation by his slaves, but in industry and capital. A grievously wounded Confederate veteran loses his grip on a world he no longer understands. And two people enslaved at Beauvais plantation, Nurse and Rawls, overcome impossible odds to be together."--Publisher.
