When Leander Jordan and Paul Settles enlist in the Union army, they each carry deep and dangerous secrets. And when they meet in a Union hospital, they begin to discover each other’s secrets and form a bond that will prove impossible to break. That bond will give them both the courage to survive the war as well as to recognize the importance of family, loyalty, and love. Kathy Cannon Wiechman’s debut novel told in two voices powerfully transports readers to the homes, waterways, camps, hospitals, and prisons of the Civil War. An extensive author’s note comments on the book’s research and includes archival images.
