Product description

Product Description

A secret binds a brother and sister for a lifetime in this truth-based family saga about loyalty, courage, faith and survival.

Filled with pride and the desire for glory, nineteen-year-old Watt kissed his mother, sweetheart, brothers and sisters goodbye. Then he answered the call of the Confederacy. After many battles and two prison camps he wondered if he would ever find peace or return to his beloved family and quiet farm life.

Ten-year-old Lizzie proudly watched her brothers, uncles and close neighbors ride off to war in their butternut uniforms. Yankee troops, near starvation and the disappearance of her father forced to leave her childhood behind, with five younger brothers and sisters to care for. Will she have the courage to honor the promise made to her dead mother?

Journey into the war-torn hills of Middle Tennessee, the blood bath that was Chickamauga and the hell hole of Rock Island Prison as Rita Holcomb weaves her fascinating family history into an intriguing fiction story that spans 70 years.

About the Author

Rita Ownby Holcomb is a fourth generation Texan who has always been fascinated by the question, "Where did we come from?" Her earliest memories are of asking her grandparents where they were born and what their families were like. This quest for knowledge coupled with a love of all things historical has led to the birth of this series of novels based on her father's family and their home in Tennessee.
