Paperback. 408 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 1.0in.At seventeen, Morgana Heirs exotic dark beauty, inherited from her handsome father Morgan contrasts with her twenty year old sister Sarahs blonde prettiness and pale coloring, a token from their red haired mother, Lillian. Morganas fiery and outspoken nature, also attributable to her father, conflicts with Sarahs genteel behavior, admired by all who know them. Having taken control of every aspect of her life beginning at the very hour of her traumatic birth, Morgana defiantly exhibits independence in an era when such behavior is unseemly in a woman of breeding. Spoiled by her father, Gana is an enigma to her stable and generous mother Lillian who, despite herself, leans towards her first daughter affectionately dubbed Sweet Sarah. Unaffected, Morgana entrusts her constant companion, Willow, Mulatto servant girl and daughter of household retainers, Henry and Rachel, with her confidences. Having been born only hours apart, Morgana and Willow share a kinship contradictory to expectations during the era in which they live. Sarahs betrothed, Jonathan Baker from Greenleaf, next door, along with the Heirs sisters older brother Drew are away serving in the Confederate Army. Drews dedicated wife, Laura Lee, mother of his twins, lives with his family at Briars. Wil, the younger Heirs brother, a gangling red haired fifteen year old, against his fathers authority and his mothers fear for his well-being, desperately wishes to join in the battle before the war is over. Patriarch Morgan Heirs sudden death, two days before Atlantas fall, leaves the household stunned. When victory by Shermans Union Army over Confederate General Hood brings about the capture and subsequent burning of Atlanta, the Heirs family is unable to evacuate to a safer locale as they must remain behind, awaiting Drews leave from the Confederate Army for Morgans burial. Meanwhile, Morgans body lies in cold storage in the Heirs nearby root cellar cave. With Atlanta in flames, on November 15, 1864, This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title:
From the Author: It is always exciting to me when readers tell me personally, write or e-mail me to express their enjoyment of and appreciation for one of my novels. Especially, when it has taken several years to complete the work. All the while the book is in progress, I wonder if readers will find enough mystery, enough intrigue, enough concern for my characters to hold their interest until the end. Then finally, when readers express to me their deep affection for my people and the happiness they have derived from their reading experience, I am deeply touched and graciously rewarded for my efforts.
