Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Claire Louise Corbett and her Confederate family flee their home as Union soldiers shell their town of Vicksburg, Mississippi. They venture out from the safety of a cave only three times a day, when the Union army takes their meals at eight in the morning, noon, and eight at night. When Claire Louise discovers her brother, a doctor, tending to a Confederate soldier who is responsible for Robert E. Lees “lost order” (causing the South to lose the Battle of Antietam), she is forced to make a difficult choice between family and friends.

Synopsis:

An award-winning historical novelist paints a story of family, courage, and secrets during the 47-day siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi--a battle that has sometimes been ignored in history because it ended the same day as the Battle of Gettysburg.
