An unforgettable epic novel of the Civil War South from an award-winning author, brought to life by one of 2010's Audiofile VOICES OF THE YEAR, Karen White.

The Road From Chapel Hill is a sweeping tale of the Civil War, unique in its perspective and exquisitely woven, in which three young Southerners worlds apart are joined in a quest for something greater than themselves.

Eugenia Mae Spotswood, the daughter of a failed aristocrat, longs to regain the life she lost. The slave Tom wants one thing: freedom. After becoming the property of Eugenia Mae, a dangerous affection grows. But he learns freedom is not something she can give him - he must fight for it himself.

Clyde Bricket, the farm boy responsible for Tom's capture, has always believed in the South. But he soon learns that sometimes the only way to redeem yourself is to fight against everything he thought he believed in.

    " I liked this better than I thought I would. I expected something very formulaic and predictable, but it continued to surprise me, right to the end. Interesting look at what was going on in and around my current hometown during the Civil War. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia T | 12/5/2013

    " Companion book to Child of the South. Generally about life in post Civil War in North Carolina. Learned alot of history. Learned there was once a "poorhouse" in Greensboro! "

    " I thought it was prdictable, but I was wrong. I wanted to keep reading, but was a bit disappointed. However, it does inspire me to want to read more about the Civil War. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joycelyn | 8/20/2013

    " I wondered throughout the book how the author would tie together these three distinct yet interrelated characters and stories. I am still wondering as the end left as many questions as answers. A lot of this novel is somewhat grim and depressing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jsimpson143 | 5/30/2013

    " If you like North Carolina historical fiction, you'll like this. The main character is a young woman who goes from a life of privilege to one of service to wounded Conferederate deserters. Scott's development of main and supporting characters is outstanding. "

    " I technically didn't 'read' this book. I got almost 100 pages into and had to give up. I just couldn't get into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 5/15/2013

    " I hadn't read a good civil war novel in a while and it was good to get back into that genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cj Nelson | 1/23/2013

    " Simple, predictable. If you are ever in the mood for a quick easy read that doesn't weigh down your mind, here you go. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 12/17/2012

    " I was really disapointed in this book. I couldn't figure out how Clyde had any relavance or importance in the novel other than to annoy me. The end was also saddening and didn't tie up any of the loose ends that the author had created. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane | 12/8/2012

    " Not what I had hoped for from a historical fiction novel about the Civil War. There were parts that were interesting but most of it was rather boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 9/11/2012

    " Histocial fiction about a young woman and a male slave during the Civil War era. The whole story takes place in North Carolina, with special emphasis on Chapel Hill. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 7/26/2012

    " A sweeping tale set in the south during the Civil War, in which three people, worlds apart, are joined in a struggle for something greater than themselves. It was a well written book, vivid in detail, but not a fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelie | 7/17/2012

    " I didn't like the reader much and the story just seemed kind of unemotional when it should have been more. I think it would have been better to read than to have listened to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally Buckner | 4/18/2012

    " How those who opposed the war worked to help wounded Union soldiers in Salisbury, NC. From history and such novels as Cold Mountain I already knew how the war disrupted the civil society and made ruffians of ordinary people, but Scott reminded me of the corruptions caused by war. "

    " Very moving. Great read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 6/1/2011

    " I enjoy the Civil War time period. I was sad at the end, but I guess things always don't work out as I hope! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 5/21/2011

    " I don't always enjoy history books, but this one was different. I like the intertwining stories of the three main sections of the book. There is a young woman and her father, a slave named Tom, and a boy named Clyde. Based in the Civil War era this was a great book to read. "
