A Civil War epic follows the struggles of two brothers who are pitted on opposing sides in the war, a situation that is complicated when they both fall for the same woman.
In this riveting Civil War adventure, Coyle's command of the battlefield brings home the grim reality of that wrenching conflict. At the heart of the story are two brothers, sons of a prosperous New Jersey businessman whose growing wealth and power are dependent on his ability to avoid choosing sides as the abolitionist movement takes hold. James and Kevin Bannon, who have always shielded each other from their father's tyrannical outbursts, see their fierce loyalty abruptly shattered by their rivalry over a woman--and her shocking, violent death. James is sent off to Virginia Military Institute to make something of himself, while Kevin attends college in the north. Soon they will find themselves on opposite sides in every great action of the war. Look Away is a powerful, richly detailed work, full of the drama and anguish of America's cruelest war.

The Civil War becomes an actual brother-against-brother struggle in this work, the first in a saga. Having been separated by their tyrannical father, Kevin and James Bannon find themselves on opposite sides of the same battles. In this abridgment, however, much of Coyle's meticulous detail on the private soldier's life is lost, and the narrative doesn't flow smoothly. Chadwick's voice is fine, but his performance is uneven. The narrative sections and characters are well done, yet Chadwick's accents are inconsistent. However, his reading of Pickett's Charge makes this recording worthwhile. Blackstone has an unabridged version of this work, which is preferable. However, if you can't obtain that version, this abridgment will suffice. M.T.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
