James Longstreet has more than a cameo role in this historical novel that juxtaposes Cait Clark's life on an Upcountry South Carolina horse farm with her brothers' battlefield experiences. In the Civil War's aftermath, Cait begins the process of rebuilding the family farm and her relationship with Longstreet. But it's not easy for her to do. "When are you going to give up this ridiculous vendetta against anything Federal blue?" a war-crippled brother finally asks Cait.
