Amid war and the fading dream of the Confederacy, a
wounded soldier and a destitute widow discover the true
meaning of Christmas - and of sacrificial love.
Recently widowed, Aletta Prescott struggles to hold life
together for herself and her six-year old son. With the
bank threatening to evict, she discovers an advertisement
for the Women's Relief Society auction and applies for a
position - only to discover it's been filled. Then a
chance meeting with a wounded soldier offers another
opportunity - and friendship. But can Aletta trust this
Captain Jake Winston, a revered Confederate sharpshooter,
suffered a head wound at the Battle of Chickamauga. When
doctors deliver their diagnosis, Jake fears losing not

Relief Society auction. He respectfully objects.
Kowtowing to a bunch of "crinolines" isn't his idea of
soldiering. But orders are orders, and he soon discovers
this group of ladies - one, in particular - is far more
than he bargained for.
Set against the backdrop and history of the Carnton
Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee, Christmas at Carnton
is a story of hope renewed and faith restored at
