BENNINGTON, Neb. (PRWEB) November 25, 2015
Author Tommy Nocerino’s love and interest in American history inspired him to write a gripping historical novel. Woven with action, romance, drama and suspense, “Greycourt” (published by Xlibris) depicts the honor and integrity of a Southerner during the Civil War.
This book follows dashing Colton James Greycourt, son of the prestigious Virginia Greycourts, as he fights for “the cause.” Joining up with the flamboyant and dynamic cavalry general Jeb Stuart of the First Virginia Cavalry, he become one of the general’s favorites. While the First Virginia Calvary establishes itself not only as a major force but also the eyes and ears of the army of Northern Virginia, Colton is also fighting another battle about his confusion as to what “the cause” really is. Fighting treachery on both sides and battling agents threatening to prolong the war, can his cunning and daring put a stop to all of these?
An excerpt from the book:
A carriage took the men into town and to Le Versailles, a tavern frequented by many of the planters in the area. The talk was usually of horses and crops. There were boisterous greetings as Marcel and the young men came in and went right up to the bar. Dion, Colt, and Ortega shook hands with the many friends of Marcel at the establishment, all but one.
A compelling read, “Greycourt” gives readers a glimpse into the causes of the Confederacy during the American Civil War through the eyes of a remarkable hero who is branded as a traitor, outlaw and patriot.
