by Keith N. Corman
Scourged Souls takes place during the American Civil War; however, it is not about the war itself. Instead, it takes the reader into the lives and settings of the characters whose lives cross, for a brief few days during a horrific battle, whether directly or indirectly through relationships. It reflects on the innocence of the characters and daily life. It also enters into personal reflections and the beliefs and plans of those involved.
Author Keith N. Corman's work will leave readers with a sense that personal lives in previous eras were much like our own now, and that war is harsh and leaves scars on those left behind, whether in the area of conflict or those back out of harm's way on the home front.
