by Lydia Hawke

February, 1865, Columbia, South Carolina Sherman's army is destroying everything in its path as it blazes through South Carolina. Blake Winberry, a Confederate cavalry captain, is transferred from the Virginia front, determined to defend his home state. There he finds out his fiancée has left him for a profiteering draft-dodger, adding insult to jeopardy. Judith Rogers has lost her husband and her home to the war. A desperate journey through South Carolina poses new terrors when a group of marauders threaten to plunder the scant possessions and dignity she has left. Blake saves her from unspeakable horrors and offers her the hospitality of his home. Still chaffing from his fiancée's rejection, he asks Judith to marry him, an offer she hopes will bring her the home and stability she craves. But he must leave the warmth of home and his bride to take on an unstoppable enemy, against hopeless odds. As Columbia burns, Judith once again finds herself homeless, and Blake strives to maintain his humanity in the midst of war's brutality. Will Judith make Blake forget the fickle woman he still loves? Will she succeed, only to lose him in the next bloody battle?

Generally I like my history straight but sometimes fiction, properly researched and well-written can actually give you a better feel for the people, their struggles and their humanity. Mrs Hawke accomplished this very nicely. It is a real page-turner and the woman's perspective gives depth and perspective often missing in laborious battle details. She has done her homework and historical accuracy was not sacrificed in the slighest. I would recommend this to both the serious or casual reader of history.
Could not put this book down absolutely loved it beginning to end
Against the backdrop of war in the South, Ms. Hawke, is sure to set your heart on fire as she uses her Civil War knowledge and expert command to lead us through a romance that transcends the dangers of blazing history.

I loved reading this book. It was hard to put down and I hung on until the end. It was well written and I was drawn in with the character. I'm thinking about ordering the movie to see if it is as good and the novel. Recommended!
This is the book that puts Lydia Hawke on the map! It is a gripping story and will be made into an independent film soon. You won't regret buying this book, I promise!
