My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I won this book from Goodreads First Reads.

The General and Monaville, Texas is told mostly from the standpoint of the General’s grandson John Ross Wilhite. It takes place in the small Texas town of Monaville shortly after the Civil War. A time of unease after the war and the freeing of the slaves we get a glimpse of the citizens trying to bring their town back after the war and the beginning of the Klan.

The book was a short read at only 168 pages but I felt you still got a good look into the characters and this era. You can’t help but feel for those still fighting for their freedoms even after the war had ended.
