book title front


Widow Madeline Howard is left homeless and without a means of supporting herself after the battle of Gettysburg, but she’s not without admirers. As the war rages, she travels to Richmond to stay with an aunt and uncle. While her heart belongs to General James Downing of the Union army, a Confederate colonel, Elliott Haywood, seeks to woo her. When she becomes privy to information that might aid James, she must choose between saving her beloved and betraying the family and friends who have shown her kindness. 

This is the second novel in Mary Ellis’ Civil War Heroines series. Check out my review of book one, The Quaker and the Rebel, here.
