In the post Civil War South, there are consequences for a Northern man who falls for a Southern Belle. A story of a friendship ripped apart by war, and rebuilding your life after near total devastation.
I love historical fiction (just check my Goodreads :D) and I couldn’t be happier when my friend Licpa rec’d me this jewel.
Since I’m in my book cover craze I decided some fanart was in order. Sadly, Kristen has not acted in a period film yet (unless you count SWATH) so I had to make this manip to create the banner.
Bella in this story is a strong Southern woman, who has lost all the family she had left but still manages to be strong enough to support a friend in need (Jasper.)
Jasper is a truly tragic character in this story, I won’t tell you his story, because I want you to read it. Suffice to say that he has scars in him that go way deeper than skin-deep.
Edward is a Union soldier who was once an idealistic boy that after seen the horrors of war has changed to a weary shadow of who he used to be.
The story is nearly complete (only a short epilogue left) so this is a great time to start it.
