Post Civil War South

An edgy novel that runs many parallels with the current day tragedy of Katrina to the aftermath of the Civil War. Moreover, this gritty novel from a gifted writer addressees the greater healing that begins in life, when we are courageous enough to lay aside our preconceived notions and personal prejudices.
The Civil War is over; Elizabeth wants to help the South heal and repent of its past…Andre swears never to forgive the North for what they did to his family.
Elizabeth has traveled to this war-ravaged city to minister to the people devastated by the conflict—having been a strict abolitionist who was part of the Underground Railroad—she seeks to help the South understand the transgression of slavery. Andre and Elizabeth’s attraction is immediate and obvious, but they quickly discover how diverse two people can be in their values and beliefs.
Even in the midst of their warring points of view, Andre cannot help but notice Elizabeth’s courage and resilience—and remarkable impact—in the face of fierce opposition. Through the commitment of three former slaves, he discovers secrets from his family’s past that force him to face head on his own views of the intrinsic worth and dignity of all people.
