A country torn in battle.

Madelyn Clemmons loved her life in Atlanta. Balls, soirees, and helping her physician father to heal the ill and afflicted in their town. But the dratted War of Northern Aggression has torn her fair city—and her life—apart. Nothing will ever be the same.

Raised as a rancher, Luke Guylenhall is now a captain in the Yankee army. He’s so thankful the War for Southern Aggression has finally ended. Such a toll on so many. So many lives lost.
