Cold Mountain, by Charles Frazier

Read and reviewed in October, 2012, released later

This is a compelling novel about a wounded Civil War deserter and his heroic, almost superhuman efforts to return home and to the girl he thinks he loves. Meanwhile, the girl, an ex-Southern Belle, is struggling to survive after the death of her father, without ever having learned how to garden or cook or keep house. As this book deals with the harsh realities of war and life and death in 19th century America, it is very graphic and gory in parts.
