In this continuation of Kim Murphy’s Civil War trilogy, sisters Amanda and Alice struggle to reconcile political and family loyalties.
Betrothed to Major Samuel Prescott, Amanda sympathizes with the Union, but Alice struggles to forgive the Northern forces that nearly destroyed their home. To make ends meet, Alice smuggles medical supplies for the Confederacy, and she falls in love with Amanda’s former beau, Colonel William Jackson. Meanwhile, two opposing armies, devastated by the clash at Fredericksburg, wait for the spring campaign on the banks of the Rappahannock River. As the two sisters are swept up in the maelstrom, they must rely on their hearts and their own resources to navigate treacherous paths to honor and glory.
