Varina - Charles Frazier

Staff Pick

Varina is a haunting and beautifully written historical novel about Varina Davis, the wife of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy.  It traces her escape from Richmond with her children, her life before meeting her much older and already widowed husband, and her turbulent years after the war including her many losses and struggles.  She was truly a fascinating woman who lived during a time of great tragedy, change and upheaval.  Frazier includes so many interesting historical tidbits throughout the novel and reading Varina is a pure delight.
