BEAUTY FROM ASHES by MaryLu Tyndall [Civil War, 1865]
When the Civil War leaves William Wolfe disfigured in body and soul, he rests his hopes in returning to the arms of his fiancee, Annie. Does her rejection of him keep him from seeing the "Beauty from Ashes" and risking his heart again? Standing in the shadows, is Annie's sister, Permelia, who not only had been carrying the coin William gave Annie but also had been writing the letters of encouragement to William when Annie had given up all hope and stopped sending letters. Love had also blinded Permelia to any disfigurement war caused to William face.

These four authors did an amazing job bringing each of their sections together to create a wonderful tale.
