Editorial Reviews

Review

“Exquisitely imagined, deeply researched, Donald McCaig's Ruth's Journey brings to the foreground the most enigmatic and fascinating figure in Gone With the Wind. This is a brave work of literary empathy by a writer at the height of his powers, who demonstrates a magisterial understanding of the period, its clashing cultures and its heartbreaking crises.” (Geraldine Brooks, author of March)

“Rich with sympathyand telling prose…McCaig’s prequel proves engaging and satisfying,” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

"A much-needed fleshing out of one of the original book’s three major characters." (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Praise for Rhett Butler's People

"Pierces the mystery in which Mitchell shrouded Rhett Butler... The new story has its own integrity... [A] fine novel." (The New York Times)

"A must-read for Gone With the Wind fans." (People)

"McCaig creates a convincting backstory and has a real feel for men and the tensions between fathers, sons, friends and soldiers, aqs well as the nuances of Southern honor... The novel focuses on Rhett's point of view and explains exactly where he got his dash." (USA Today)

"A work of genuine literary aspiration that attempts to fill in the psychological blanks behind one of the most captivating enigmas in romantic fiction." (The Guardian)

"An engrossing update of Gone with the Wind that fans of the original will definitely give a damn about." (Publishers Weekly)

More praise for the novels of Donald McCaig

"Captures the details of wartime Virginia with stunning force... Think Gone With the Wind; think Cold Mountain." (People)

"This is a tale of courage, cowardice, death, life, growth, war, violence, redemption, and finally, love and compassion... A gentle compelling story." (The Washington Post)

"The finest novel about the Civil War ever written." (Virginia Quarterly)

"McCaig's prose is gorgeous...One of the best Civil War novels...Stunning." (Houston Chronicle)

" [McCaig] combines a farmer's eye for the natural world, a poet's ear for language, and the narrative flair of a bred-in-the-bone storyteller. The result is a novel that is credible, compelling, and humane." (Geraldine Brooks, author of March)

"McCaig has spun pure gold." (Dayton Daily News)

"Tantalizing. A flawless orchestration... Masterful... A model of concision, unshowy research and the easy authority of a novelist work with material he intuitively gets." (Washington Post Book World)
