Robert E. Lee, one of the most famous figures in American history, vanished after his dramatic surrender at Appomattox. In fact, he lived only another five years, during which time he did more than any other American to heal the wounds between North and South during the tempestuous postwar period. This is a moving and intimate account of those years filled with the warmth of family ties and enduring friendships set against the harsh realities of Reconstruction. Though Lee is best remembered for his military campaigns, this was his finest hour, the great forgotten chapter of an extraordinary life.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[An] unforgettable portrait of a hero.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“An American classic.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“I think it’s wonderful. Tragic and powerful, with the rhythm of a classic, the stupendous research subordinated to the emotion it evokes, it is the end of the story for which we have been waiting over a century.” Theodore H. White
“A rare blend of history and emotion, a book that speaks to both the mind and the heart. It should be read north and south, east and west, throughout America.” Thomas Fleming
“True stories of work, home and family paint a warm and loving portrait of this much-admired figure in American history. The narrator reads this gentle and poignant biography with an appropriately soft voice, sometimes slipping in a hint of a southern accent which adds authenticity to the dialogue. One has the feeling that the narrator cares a lot about the subject of the book, as will the listener about this fine recording.” AudioFile
