Three years have passed since General Robert E. Lee routed the Union army at Gettysburg and caused the Lincoln government to flee Washington, D.C. Now, as president of the Confederacy, Lee realizes the hollowness of his victory as he watches the South he loved and defended slowly crumble before his eyes. Lee must reach out to the only man he believes can help him save the South - the disgraced and out-of-office President Abraham Lincoln. Amidst intense opposition, the two men secretly devise a plan that, if successful, could reunite the country once again.
Reunion is an intricate and thoroughly researched work of alternate history that examines the question: What if the South won the Civil War? Through engaging prose and an extensive cast of compelling characters, Metroke explores this question with the grace and sensibility of a seasoned novelist, and with the diligence and precision of a shrewd historian. The result is a book that is deeply satisfying from both a literary and historical perspective. Reunion is simultaneously entertaining and informative, human and political, and above all, historical and relevant. It is a must-listen for anyone who desires to understand the American politics of the past and the present.
