Anne Couper Fraser has often endured sorrow-- the death of her beloved husband and daughter and the loss of the family home. Now, frightening rumors of a war between the states are circulating, and Anne, an ardent Unionist, can only watch and pray as her cherished son enlists in the Confederate Army. But, when the tide of war turns against the Southern cause, Anne finds new strength, fighting to keep her family-- now cruelly divided by war-- bound to each other by faith and love.
