Two young women in a land shattered by war test the limits of their strength Lovely Julia Hoffman has always enjoyed the carefree life of her well-to-do Philadelphia family. But when she fails to attract the attention of Nathaniel Greene, a fierce abolitionist, she shocks her family by becoming a Union nurse. Will that be enough to win Nathaniel's heart? Phoebe Bigelow, from western Virginia, has always been a misfit, and when her brothers join the Union army, she also enlists--under false pretenses. Soon, both have their eyes opened to the realities of war and suffering. Neither is quite ready for the demands of her new life, but their journeys of sacrifice and love are sure to change them in unexpected ways.

Wow, such a beautifully written book of strength and determination, the love of God, the lessons we share that bring us closer to God.I can really relate to this book. Lynn Austin has a magical way of making you take a look at your life and saying "ah ha!"
