Publisher's Summary

During the Civil War, two young soldiers on opposite sides find themselves drawn together. One is a war-weary scholarly Southerner who has seen too much bloodshed, especially the tortures inflicted upon the enemy by his vicious commanding officer, his uncle. The other is a Herculean Yankee captured by the rag-tag Confederate band and forced to become a martyr for all the sins of General Sheridan's fires. When these two find themselves admiring more than each other's spirit and demeanor, when passions erupt between captor and captive, will this new romance survive the arduous trek to Purgatory Mountain?

More for the S&M scene people

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the story had led itself forward instead of everything seemingly focused on a camp where a prisoner is, after a wee while, the center of an S&M scenario that grows like any penny dreadful novel.


Has Purgatory put you off other books in this genre?

It has not put me off. It should have been a bit more obvious in the blurb how we were to expect the extreme descriptive narrative.


Any additional comments?

If you are liking the S&M scene with humiliation dressed as war, then go for it. I want to give it back, but that is not possible. No depth or substance for me.
