It is 1862 Virginia. During the tumultuous "Seven Days" battles of the Peninsula Campaign, federal troops prepare to capture Richmond. And on unfamiliar land, dotted with Rebel campfires, young courier Seth Llyr finds himself lying in a muddy ditch with no clear memory of how he had come to be there...and a very clear idea of where he would soon end up: as a prisoner of war.
Undercover agent Bronwen Llyr is working side-by-side with her sister Kathryn, a volunteer nurse for the Union Army, when they hear news of their brother, Seth. Driven by moral conviction, Bronwen must engineer Seth's flight from Libby Prison before the date set for his hanging. But as time escapes her, so too does hope for young Seth.
As the harsh reality of war burns all too close to home, it is the sisters who fight for the brothers in their own battle of right and wrong, of love and war.
