Nothing survived “The Breaking” unchanged; lives and fortunes, love and hate, freedom and slavery …

It’s early 1860, and war hero Captain Nathaniel Chambers, commander U.S. Army Fort Davis in the west Texas wilderness, has received shocking news – his father is dead.  He must return home to Virginia and claim his inheritance before a maniacal neighbor can murder his widowed mother and seize the family plantation.

But he’s torn by a terrible dilemma – to stay in the army and turn his back on his fortune, his mother and his beloved childhood home, or become the thing he despises; a slave master!  Is there no other choice? 

An epic journey across a young nation seething with debauchery, brutality, corruption, and political intrigue, unwittingly on the brink of an unimaginable disaster; the American Civil War.  Nathan Chambers has left the violent army life behind in Texas, never imaging he’s on the very Road to The Breaking.

My Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

One of my favorite movies ever is Free State Of Jones. To me this book had some similarities to that – the time era and the conflict. I thought this story was phenomenal. The scene is Pre-Civil War where slavery is the thing people are doing, but one practice that some despise.

Nathanial Chambers is a U.S. Army Captain who is serving in Texas when he gets some bad news. His father, who he was never close with, suddenly dies, and his mother wants him to come home and take care of the plantation. There’s a major dilemma though, Nathanial hates slavery. You take an emotionally taxing journey with Nathanial as he decides what he wants to do with his life.

The story jumps back in forth to different time periods, laying down the story without just dumping it on you at once. The back and forth is seamless and easy to follow. The pacing of this story was even – not too fast but not slow either. The characters are really well thought out, you can tell the author makes great connections with each of them. Overall, I think it’s a great historical fiction. With a bit of a cliffhanger I can’t wait to see which way the story moves in.

Book Description:

“How can I call myself a man of good conscience, when I myself am no better than a slaver?”

It’s summer 1860, and former army Captain Nathan Chambers has returned home to Virginia to claim his inheritance: a large plantation with more than one hundred slaves.  Nathan wants no part of slavery and intends to sell the farm and all its slaves.  But even as he arrives home, enduring fearful and downcast stares from despondent black faces, he knows what he must do … and the price he must pay for doing it.    

As Nathan works to carry out his ambitious plans, he is troubled by rumors of succession and war, even as a villainous neighbor plots a violent end to their decades-long family feud.

And then Evelyn arrives … strikingly beautiful, spirited, and intriguing, she is the daughter of an old family friend.  But the more Nathan is drawn in by her charms, the harder she pushes him away … 

The Road to the Breaking Series is an epic tale of a young nation seething with debauchery, brutality, corruption, and political intrigue, unwittingly on the brink of a deadly precipice: the American Civil War.  In Book 2 of the series, Nathan Chambers has returned from the violent army life out West, only to face a heart wrenching Enigma at home.
