At her fathers death Amantha learns that her mother was a slave and that she, too, is to be sold into servitude.

What follows is a vast panorama of one of the most turbulent periods of American history as seen through the eyes of this star-crossed young woman. Amantha soon finds herself in New Orleans, where she spends the war years with Hamish Bond, a slave trader. At wars end, she marries Tobias Sears, a Union officer and Emersonian idealist. Despite sporadic periods of contentment- Amantha finds life with Tobias trying, and she is haunted still by her tangled past. Oh, who am I? she asks at the beginning of the novel.

Only after many years, after achieving a hard-won wisdom and maturity, does she begin to understand the answer to that question. Band of Angels puts on ready display Robert Penn Warrens prodigious gifts. First published in 1955, it is one of the most searing and vivid fictional accounts of the Civil War era ever written.
