Based on the Battle of Franklin in 1864, the deadliest hours of the Civil War have found Carrie McGavock’s plantation.
She had no choice. Her home was chosen as the nearest and best solution for the upcoming war hospital. She had no idea what she was in for as she waited for her love to return from his part in the war.
Yet Carrie knew his return was unlikely. It was a hope she hung on to while literally piles of wounded and dead men scattered her yard and home.
One man had a special place in her home. She gave him her bedroom to recover in and she kept him longer than any other mending soldier.
Something about the warmth and companionship in Zachariah Cashwell’s eyes tore at her heart.
He left with the last of the soldiers.
Carrie tended the garden of the dead where all soldiers had a proper burial. She mourned for their families and mourned for the return of Zachariah. She knew he was somewhere, still alive.
An amazing account of how the unseen chemistry will work and last the years until reunited when true love cannot be denied.
