Manassas is the first book in Reasoner’s ten-volume series spanning the Civil War and describing its effects on one Southern family.

Storm clouds are approaching Culpeper County, Virginia, in early January 1861. The troublesome Fogarty brothers have been raising havoc across the countryside, and when the local lawman, Will Brannon, returns from another futile attempt to track them down, he finds the townspeople abuzz. South Carolina has seceded from the Union, and rumor has it more states will follow, perhaps even Virginia. Will enlists, but so, too, do the Fogartys. All know that men die in battle and that these deaths are never investigated.

As the Brannon brothers answer the call to arms, the family finds itself struggling with dilemmas it never had considered.

Listener Opinions

    " Listened to this on MP3 during the bus/metro commute. Had visited Manassas Battlefield this summer on a super hot/humid day. Felt what the soldiers would have felt and stood where they stood. Historical fiction but dates and events are all there to help with the details of the real thing. "

    " The book has a nice story about the Brannon family in Culpepper, VA, at the beggining of the Civil War. The story starts at the time of the South Carolina secession. The book has little to do with the Civil war, about 10 %, but it is a likeable story of things happening around it. "

    " I thought it would be more about the history. It's really a story about a family while the war goes on. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. I like the fact that it is centered around a family during the war. I can hardly wait to read the next book. "
