The bonds linking family and the lines separating enemies have become very
blurry for 17-year-old Robert. With his father away fighting for the Union, Robert
must decide to act alone in order to help his ailing mother, extricate his injured
Confederate Uncle, and bring relief to his cousin, Emily. When he unwittingly gets
entangled in a Confederate escape plot, Robert must forge his anger and shame into
a new determination to save his family. And, perhaps, he must also realize that
the saving might not be entirely up to him. Honor and duty to God and country aren't
as clear-cut as he hoped them to be.
