The Civil War has turned neighbor against neighborâ€”but for
one scientist spy and her philosopher soldier, war could
bind them togetherâ€¦
For all of the War Between the States, Marlie Lynch has
helped the cause in peace: with coded letters about anti-
Rebel uprisings in her Carolina woods, tisanes and
poultices for Union prisoners, and silent aid to fleeing
slave and Freeman alike. Her formerly enslaved motherâ€™s
traditions and the name of a white father she never knew
have protected herâ€”until the vicious Confederate Home
Guard claims Marlieâ€™s home for their new base of
operations in the guerilla war against Southern resistors
of the Rebel cause.
Unbeknowst to those under her roof, escaped prisoner Ewan
McCall is sheltering in her laboratory. Seemingly a quiet
philosopher, Ewan has his own history with the cruel
captain of the Home Guard, and a thoughtful but unbending
strength Marlie finds irresistible.
When the revelation of a stunning family secret places
Marlieâ€™s freedom on the line, she and Ewan have to run for
their lives into the hostile Carolina night. Following the
path of the Underground Railroad, they find themselves
caught up in a vicious battle that could dash their hopes
of loveâ€”and freedomâ€”before they ever cross state lines.
