[from the back cover] The epic saga of WILD SWAN continues. Wild Swan is their land, the foundation on which Alexandria and Rane Falconer have built their lives and fortunes. Now Civil War threatens all. It is up to the next generation to keep the cherished family bonds and heal the wounds of a struggling nation.
MORGAN, the eldest son, pursues adventure with the Union's naval intelligence, but finds bitter reality in the infamous prison at Andersonville.
NIGEL shares his medical skills with the poor, but marries a woman who tears the family apart.
BLANE fights for justice, though the world is in flames, and strives to keep his daughters safe from war, even as the raging conflict overturns not only young men's lives but women's as well.
FLORA, the strong-willed daughter, leaves tragedy behind to launch a campaign for women's sufferage.
GINCIE, the fiery granddaughter, risks her life on the Underground Railreay and emerges as fighter, healer, and peacemaker.

Here is the unforgettable stroy of a family of people whose lives mirror their country's turbulent growth...a vibrant and authentic panprama of its times.
