摘要:

What can a woman--a mere governess--do against the scourge of slavery? Elizabeth "Lizzie" Clouston's quietly held principles oppose those of the Southern Cause--but when forty thousand soldiers converge on the fields of Franklin, Tennessee, the war demands an answer. The Carnton home where she is governess is converted into a Confederate field hospital, and Lizzie is called upon to assist the military doctor with surgeries that determine life or death.

"From the pages of history and the personal accounts of those who endured the Battle of Franklin, Tamera Alexander weaves the real-life love letters between Captain Roland Ward Jones and Miss Elizabeth Clouston into a story of unlikely romance first kindled amid the shadows of the Civil War"--

November 30, 1864. A brutal battle in Franklin, Tennessee all but decimates the Confederacy and nearly kills Captain Roland Ward Jones. Despite the severity of his wounds, Jones believes his life will be spared. But a life without his leg he can't abide. He compels Elizabeth "Lizzie" Clouston-- governess to the McGavock family at the Carnton mansion-- to intervene should the surgeon decide to amputate. When a fourteen-year-old soldier dies in Lizzie's arms that night, the boy's final words demand that Lizzie deliver them to their intended recipient. How can she set out alone across a land so divided by war and hatred to honor her pledge? -- adapted from back cover
