Robert Hicks, author of the popular best-selling novel The Widow of the South, returns with a heart-rending new work, A Separate Country. It's a deeply affecting book based on the life of John Bell Hood, one of the most controversial Confederate Civil War generals. He lost two limbs in action and was relieved of his command just before the Battle of Atlanta. After the war, he married and tried to build a new life but remained damaged by defeat and pain; his story is that of a good and decent man beset by tragedy, and you won't soon forget it when you read Hicks' book.
