Varina : a novel

Image of item
Large Print Book

Large print edition.

With her marriage prospects limited, teenage Varina Howell agrees to wed the much-older widower Jefferson Davis, with whom she expects a life of security as a Mississippi landowner. He instead pursues a career in politics and is eventually appointed president of the Confederacy, placing Varina at the white-hot centre of one of the darkest moments in American history - culpable regardless of her intentions. Intimate in its detailed observations of one woman's tragic life and epic in its scope and power, this is a portrait of a woman who comes to realize that complicity carries consequences.
