From the first Union rout in Virginia to the last tragic moments of surrender, here is a gigantic five-year panorama of the Civil War! Hostilities divide the Hazards and the Mains, testing them with loyalties more powerful than family ties. While soldiers from both families clash on the battlefields, strong-willed men and beautiful women defend their principles with their lives ... or satisfy illicit cravings with schemes that could destroy friends and enemies alike
Kinship & Courage series, Jane Kirkpatrick. 'Based on an 1852 diary entry made on the Oregon Trail. “Today we met eleven wagons headed back east, all driven by women their men having died and been buried on the trail.” Three novels that explore the lives of these women as they deal with the wilderness places of their lives.'
