A heartrending story of a decent and good man who struggled with his inability to admit his failures — and the story of those who taught him to love, and to be loved, and transformed him.
In post Civil War New Orleans, General John Bell Hood and his beloved Anna Marie narrate their lives through journals and a handwritten novel. While dying of yellow jack fever Hood implores friend Eli to take his manuscript pages and seek out a known killer. The killer must give Eli permission to publish the pages or tell him to burn the book. Through this quest, we are introduced to Hood's past and his thoughts on his family, life and carreer as a general. Eli discovers ledger book journal written by Hood's wife Anna Marie to their daughter Lydia. Each tale reveals the ties between Anna and the city.
Extraordinary descriptions lends true to life scenery of the New Orleans of by gone times. Anna Marie and her beloved General come to life to create an intriguing yet heartbreaking saga of love, loss, war and faith. Wonderful!
