Splintered by Curt Locklear-Hard Cover
Historical Fiction. Second in the Civil War Trilogy-Asunder series. Splintered follows the interconnections among a superbly memorable cast of characters during the middle of the Civil War as they internally and externally wrestle with why they’re fighting, or why they’re not fighting at all. From its heart-wrenching opening scene of stoic grief in a Lincoln White House on the day of his son Willie’s death, to the final heart-wrenching battle scene and surprising assassination plot against Lincoln, Splintered proves itself a novel of sweeping, artfully rendered proportions, and one that is at times deeply moving, while always intelligent and socially conscious.
