A Beautiful Glittering Lie: A Novel of the Civil War

A Beautiful, Glittering Lie - J.D.R. Hawkins Which secondary character resonated most with you and why? Difficult to pick only one but if I must, then it would be David. He had adulthood thrust upon him and I really did feel sorry for him. He wants to do so much more and is yet restricted by his age which also means he tends to end up in more trouble than his mother would like.

How do you define the central theme in this story. Coming of age. Of course the central theme is war. But how this war then causes the people involved to mature faster than they wanted to, this is the best part of the story.

What did you think of the ending? It was predictable, most parts of the story were and I think this is the only thing that prevented me from giving the book a full 5 star review. Overall, I enjoyed this book and will read other books by the same author.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
