It confirmed I was in the Deep South, probably southern Florida or maybe Texas, even though the notion was simply too implausible to take seriously. The whole idea staggered me. I needed to get back and tell Margaret what had happened and that it worked beyond her wildest imagination.After accidentally being propelled back in time to 1859 Virginia, retired Green Beret officer John Kelly is pursued by a merciless assassin from the 20th century. Kelly discovers that the America he served for so long has been taken over by an authoritarian and corrupt administration; and that his, and America's survival, is dependent on convincing an American icon to accept his help in the impending Civil War. But Robert E. Lee, a paragon of virtue, has other ideas about that! Kelly is a man of action but also a man capable of introspection. He is accomplished and competent, but he is also subject to insecurities and self doubt. He knows where he wants to go but often wonders about the journey. With America's fate in his hands, will his actions uniteA House Divided?
