More Description

In 1861- Katy Ann Taylor, fifteen-year-old farm girl from the Highlands of East Tennessee closes the windows against a thunderous rainstorm when a stranger appears at the door, seeking refuge. Katy gives him a towel, shows him to the back porch and takes his clothes to dry by the fire. He reappears. Katy, mesmerized, moves in his direction-and into his embrace. The family returns home. Katy's father grabs his rifle from the wall and chases the young man down into the hollow. Katy runs after them. She hears a shot and sees blood pouring from the man's shoulder. She drops to the ground, weeping, as the second shot sounds. Forced out of the troublesome hollow by an incident of war, Katy, nurse and single mother seeks happiness for herself and her son in the midst or the worst strife ever encountered on American soil-the War Between the States.
