Bedlam South Review
Bedlam South is written by Mark Grisham and David Donaldson. Since I love history and heard this had a Civil War background, I was excited about reading this novel. While the Civil War is the background for this novel, you are also engrossed in a suspenseful, exciting set of characters.
