"Georgeanna "Georgy" Woolsey isn't meant for the world of lavish parties and the demure attitudes of women of her status. So when war ignites the nation, Georgy follows her passion for nursing during a time when doctors considered women on the battlefront a bother. In proving them wrong, Georgy and her sister Eliza venture from New York to Washington, D.C., to Gettysburg and witness the unparalleled horrors of slavery as they become involved in the war effort. In the South, Jemma is enslaved on the Peeler Plantation in Maryland, where she lives with her mother and father. Jemma's sister, Patience, is enslaved on the plantation next door, and both live in fear of LeBaron, an abusive overseer who tracks their every move. When Jemma is sold by the cruel plantation mistress Anne-May at the same time the Union army comes through, she sees a chance to finally escape--but only by abandoning the family she loves. Anne-May is left behind to run Peeler Plantation when her husband joins the Union army and her cherished brother enlists with the Confederates. Now in charge of the household, she uses the opportunity to follow her own ambitions and is drawn into troubles of her own, as she works to sabotage Northern soldiers, finally exposing herself to the fate she deserves."--,Provided by publisher.
