Richmond Times-Dispatch // Review

"A writer of evocative prose, Frazier possesses the rare capacity to impel the reader to stop, re-read and savor a passage..."

"A study of guilt and grief, “Varina” showcases historical fiction at its finest: emotive and explanatory. It displays Frazier’s immense talent and bountiful creativity. And it earns its place among the finest Civil War novels of any era as it chronicles damaged lives and a deservedly lost cause."
