Amelia St. John and Joshua Hawthorne fell in love at first sight. Separated by circumstance rather than ideology, they found themselves on opposite sides during the bitter Civil War. Amelia, persuaded Joshua no longer loved her, married another man.
Each struggled with their own private war. Joshua fought with the Union Army, surviving its bloodiest conflicts, while Amelia fought her war deep in the Confederacy. She battled starvation, sickness, and the death of her husband as she struggled to provide for her young son.
When the war ended, Joshua found Amelia, but the carefree girl Joshua remembered was now a disillusioned, wounded soul and a fiercely protective mother. The only male in her life she would ever allow herself to love again was her son.
Could Joshua earn back Amelia’s trust? Love is always full of possibilities.
