Twin brothers, nine-year-old sons of a plantation owner, share everything -- except their different beliefs about slavery. As the political tensions rise in the South and the twins grow up, they are caught between their passions for their causes and their love for one another. When the Civil War begins, the twins both go to war -- to fight each other.
Mary Stolz deftly captures the spirit of the times in this emotionally charged story of two brothers growing irrevocably apart. This heart-breaking tale is prompted by a real ballad dating back to the Civil War era, that the author learned as a child from her mother.
