Confederado

(2012)
A novel by

 
Alvis Stevens has a price on his head. The death of one abusive federal occupation soldier in the wake of the Civil War weighs more heavily upon him than all of the men he killed during the conflict as a member of Mosby's Rangers. The devastation visited upon the South already has forced some of its citizens to seek new lives abroad; among them, Lavinia, the prewar love Alvis believes he has lost forever. At the urging of his uncle, Thomas Bocock, Alvis seeks to evade his pursuers and join the migration to Brazil. Based on a true story and rich in historical events and personages, Confederado records one man's epic adventure across wars and hemispheres. Reviews: Confederado is a thrilling mixture of fact and fiction by an exciting new voice in Southern fiction. Alvis Stevens is a character we cheer for as he ventures to Brazil in search of a new life and an old love. - Ron Rash The story of the Confederados has been treated lightly by historians, but in Clabough's capable hands it becomes a fascinating tale of great interest. - David Madden Confederado, and its subject, is a superb rendering of this decade and setting which is seldom written about. Some may recognize the author's homage to Poe and Ovid within his novel. This descriptive excerpt offers a glimpse of the author's gifted craft: "burnt chimneys standing alone or in pairs like tired, darkened sentinels over barren fields, blackened groves and weedy gardens." Casey Clabough writes imaginative prose with a fluid natural cadence reminiscent of a Chopin melody. Highly recommended. - Historical Novel Review
