Our Confederate brother Charlie, may have seemed rash when he enlisted in the Army in a whirlwind of emotion, but we see now what a deep thinker he becomes as he sees real war up close. Suffering in a prison camp, he has time to think about previous decisions and the people he cares for most. The most unexpected rescuers come to his defense when he has had all he thinks he can take. He is chased, he is ill, he is ragged. Guilt and remorse beckon to him. Just as he almost succumbs to a deadly fate, Abigail Sterret, a Maryland daughter, finds him and is able to help him to safety. But this is not a final solution to his problems. He will have to be on the move again before the wrongs have been righted. While his heart beats hard for his family, his country and a new love, he must finish what he started. Read this courageous story of brothers that must reconcile after the Civil War almost tears both apart. Will they be able to heal? Read this wonderful historical to find out! I enjoyed this novel even better than the first part of her My Brother’s Flag series.
