The War Between the States shakes Margaret Bryant out of her comfortable upper-class life when her father enlists in the Army of the Potomac. Despite being safely ensconced above the Mason-Dixon Line in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Margaret finds her strength tested by opposition from familiar faces and Confederate threats. Will she let a young man from a lesser station into her heart even as war rages ever nearer to the home front?

Restless Connor Doyle sees the war as a way to escape from his family’s farm and his identity as a poor Irishman’s son. His brother, Adam, torn between duty to country and his family, enlists alongside Connor. Adam dares to hope in a future with Margaret when he begins a courtship correspondence from the war front. The two brothers make a vow to protect one another at all costs, but when faced with death and destruction from all sides—will they be able to uphold it?

The three bloodiest days in America’s history bring these three together at Gettysburg and tragedy’s cruelty threatens to tear two hearts apart—and bring two unlikely allies together.

Would you rather live as the main character in your favorite book for one day or watch your favorite book play out as an exact movie?
Oh I would SO much rather watch my favorite book—Little Women—play out as an exact movie. Like EXACT. Except it’d probably be a mini-series if it were exact to the book.

Who is your favorite secondary character?
Annelise, Margaret’s younger sister. She’ll get her own story someday, I’m sure. But she has such fire in spite of the war hitting closest to her heart first in the story (no spoilers!), and has to be the strong one even more than Margaret does in the story.

What’s one thing you must have in the morning?
Coffee. Always coffee. And cold water on my face to fully wake me up.
