A Shout in the Ruins

An excellent read. Well written, thought provoking, engaging.

A shout in the ruins - Kevin Powers

Alternates between two narrative threads – one set in Virginia in the US, during and after the American civil war, and the other in the 1950’s as one of the characters retraces the path to his roots. Capturing the themes of conflict, oppression and ultimately resignation and reconciliation.

I felt that the author rushed the ending which was maybe a little too abrupt.
