Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

As America marches toward the Civil War, Harry Wentworth, gentleman of distinction and journalist of renown, finds his calls for peaceful resolution have fallen on deaf—nay, hostile—ears. As such, he must finally resolve his own moral quandary: comment on the war from his influential—and safe—position in Northern Society, or make a news story and a target of himself South of the Mason-Dixon Line, in a city haunted by a life he has long since left behind?

The day-to-day struggle against countervailing forces, his personal and professional tragedies on both sides of the conflict, and the elegant and emotive writings that define him, all serve to illuminate the trials of this newsman’s crusade, irreparably altering his mind, his body, his spirit, and his purpose as an honorable man. Blind Tribute exposes the shifting stones of the moral high ground, as Harry’s family and friendships, North and South, are shattered by his acts of conscience.

Blind Tribute will give you a new perspective on the American Civil War. Seen through the eyes of Harry Wentworth, a controversial journalist who advocates for the media’s freedom of speech, one can imagine how the times were and how important people’s voices can be.

The vivid descriptions and riveting editorials written by Harry, shed light on the many issues that were plaguing the country at the time. One can get a sense of the similarities between the past and the present. The issues of freedom of speech, human rights, and politics are all there. It’s like holding a mirror between the past and present, except you see that only the clothes have changed and many of the issues have remained.

Besides the political aspect, this is a story heavily focused on family themes. Harry’s role as a husband and father raises many questions about his character. In fact, in my opinion, I don’t think he was good at being a family man in any way shape or form. He was a great journalist, but when it came to managing his family, he was quite blase’ about it. I can appreciate his flawed nature and there were times where I could sympathize with his thinking. His wife Anne, was horrendous. I have no doubt that she was part of the reason why he remained career oriented.

The Civil War not only divided the country, but it divided families as well. Harry’s relationship with his father, cousins, and friends becomes a hot topic. You will find some truly heartbreaking scenes in this story and key elements that make Harry grow as a character, but still remain true to himself. Besides not agreeing with many of Harry’s decisions, I found myself becoming fond of his character. His ups and downs become your own as you read this story. His kind nature shines through on many an occasion, but it’s his gruff outward persona that really clinches it.

This is a really long book, there is no doubt about it. However, I’m still thinking about it weeks after finishing it. It’s a story that sticks with you, because of its very real setting and characters. I found myself wanting more story and that’s because of Harry, but mainly because of the secondary characters that play such a large role in his life.

If you're a news buff, or a Civil War buff, you're going to love this book. Taking place right around/through the Civil War, it focuses on the life of a man trying to be an impartial, centrist journalist, at a time when it seems everyone is polarized to one side or another. Both the Southern and Northern sides of his family, and many friends, consider him a traitor.

It's brilliant, dare I say, a masterpiece? Thick with history and details that almost let me smell the ink in the newsrooms. It manages to look slavery and its ills squarely in the eye, without making Wentworth, the protagonist, a white savior. And for all his accomplishments and skills at hand to hand combat, he cannot protect himself against a savage attack that is described in brutal, vivid detail, which may be triggering to some. That said, there is very little mention of physical Civil War battlefields and gore, which may or may not disappoint you.

Disclaimer: I am acquainted with the author via social media.

I don't know if I so much ENJOYED this book as much as I was riveted by it, and I am still pondering the characters, and how I would have reacted, in their ink-stained clothes. I also loved the author's notes at the back, explaining which events/locations/newspapers were fictional (very few), and which characters and storylines were inspired by actual events. If you like books that make you think, this is one of them.

Good non-fiction gives us a new perspective on the facts. Great fiction puts us into someone else’s shoes, letting us live a life so different from our own that we withdraw dazed and changed. The view from Blind Tribute will remain with me always.

Blind Tribute begins on the same day as the Battle of Fort Sumter, the start of the American Civil War, and the conflicts and attitudes underpinning the war are the central themes of the book.

Harry, the protagonist, has been a newspaper man since his university days, first in his hometown of Charleston, then in war zones around the world, and—for the past twenty years—in Philadelphia, as editor of its most successful newspaper. The conflict between the States is played out in his family, his birth family demanding allegiance to the South, and his wife and son castigating him for lack of loyalty to the North.

But Harry is loyal to the neutrality of the press, and determined to make of himself his greatest news story. When he returns to Charleston but refuses to take sides, he expects to offend. He wonders if he will survive. He almost doesn’t.

Blind Tribute is a book about integrity, about the real meaning of family, about pride and its costs, about who pays for our acts of conscience. The exploration of the relationship between government and media is timely in today’s political climate, but also timeless, applying as much today as it did when Lincoln and Davis saw newspapers as propaganda machines. Harry’s view of neutrality is no more popular today than then, and more needed than ever.

Blind Tribute is meticulously researched and brilliantly written. Mari Anne Christie’s characters are real, her plot lines compelling, and her descriptions vivid. The scene that describes Harry’s ordeal is one of the most grueling things I’ve ever read.

If you read one historical fiction book in 2017, make it this one.
