Named one of the top 5 inspirational novels for 2015 by Library Journal
Despite being neighbors, Irish immigrant Maggie Malone and plantation mistress Elizabeth Blair have led such different lives that they barely know one another—until war brings them together.
Maggie Malone wants no part of the war. She’d rather let “the Americans” settle their differences—until her brothers join Missouri’s Union Irish Brigade, and one of their names appears on a list of injured soldiers.
As the mistress of her brother’s Missouri plantation, Elizabeth Blair has learned to play her part as the perfect hostess-and not to question her brother Walker’s business affairs, but then Walker helps organize the Wildwood Guard for the Confederacy and offers his plantation as the Center of Operations.
Maggie and Libbie discover that both friendship and love can come from the unlikeliest of places.
