As cousins take up arms against one another and America's bloodiest war unfolds, young Sam Shaw grows to realize that choosing sides in the conflict is far more complicated than he had thought. Connell details significant battles and profiles key historical figures as she conveys the heart-wrenching turbulence of a family and nation divides.
