Two young women in a land shattered by war test the limits of their strength
Lovely Julia Hoffman has always enjoyed the carefree life of her well-to-do Philadelphia family. But when she fails to attract the attention of Nathaniel Greene, a fierce abolitionist, she shocks her family by becoming a Union nurse. Will that be enough to win Nathaniel's heart?
Phoebe Bigelow, from western Virginia, has always been a misfit, and when her brothers join the Union army, she also enlists--under false pretenses.
Soon, both have their eyes opened to the realities of war and suffering. Neither is quite ready for the demands of her new life, but their journeys of sacrifice and love are sure to change them in unexpected ways.

I really enjoyed this book. Wonderful plot. Interesting history. Well written. Happy ending. The perfect recipe for a great book
Loved all the details. I learned so much more than I did in school about this war. I loved how God's word was intertwined and made the story soooo real.
Fire By Night
Not only a powerful story of the horrors of war but also of women who find they are more than an extension of their men. Tastefully and respectfully written with God's love in every chapter.
