Sintesi dell'editore

In this second novel in 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.

Continuing Saga of Civil War in Virginia

Book two in the trilogy brings both heartache and joy to sisters Amanda and Alice, as the war comes to their doorstep.
Amanda is pregnant with Union Officer Sam Prescott’s child. Then Sam and Amanda are married in a simple ceremony with only close friends and family attending, including Confederate Officer Wil Jackson. The growing attraction between Alice and Wil, fifteen years older than Alice, is a concern for Amanda . . . but not for all the right reasons. The intimate details of the war between the north and south on the battlefields of Virginia are perhaps the best I’ve read/listened to. Told from an unbiased viewpoint, the author has brought the war to life in a way that will stick with me for a very long time. As the two sisters visit and tend the wounds of both confederate and Yankee troops, the needless loss of life and the hopelessness of it all nearly suffocated me. Seeing/hearing what starvation and war did to the young men mentally and physically was horrific. Yet there were those, such as Wil and Sam that held to a moral code of honor and justice, even when fighting on opposing sides. All in all, this is an excellent trilogy. There are a few annoying things that I would change, such as Amanda’s wishy-washy thoughts about the past. I especially loved that Wil finally opened up about his first wife, Peopeo and their little boy, Benjamin, who had both died, and the Indian folk lore that both he and Alice embraced from that experience. This second in the trilogy is an epic tale, culminating in the north’s victory over the south. It is full of pain and loss, yet there is still personal victory. BRAVO!
