Best One In The Series! Apr 22, 2003
I love this book! The war is finally over and the Majors and Carters can finally be together again. However, Tom still feels uncomfortable about losing his leg and then gets in a big fight with Dewitt Faylor over Sarah Carter. You're also starting to see Jeff and Leah fall in love. Great book and a must read!

If another one of the townspeople doesn't screw it up for them. Go with the Majors and Carters one more time as they realize what it really means to be a family.
Love these books! Jun 7, 2000
I love these books because you never know whats going tohappen. Especially, Bring the Boys Home. You are always wondering ifLeah and Jeff really have feelings for each other or if they are going to end up getting married to someone else.I also think that the way that the author depicts the heartbreak of friends and family being split apart, and the hardships and horrors of soldiering during the Civil War, make for great reading. These are definitely must read books!
an excellent conclusion 2 an outstanding series Apr 13, 1999
I sarted reading this series in agaust, 97 and finished it march 98. It's alot of books, but they r worth the time they take to read. Espescially since it is fun 2 read.It takes the myth of chivalrous gallantry and glory out of battle, but still is not depressing. 1 of my favorit parts was when the 2 soldiers from the north and south united to kick Dewitt Falor's butt.But you should read the other books 1st. Don't worry. 'Cause they're all just as good. keep your books coming, Morris.
