Hannah Mason has spent the last two years of her life with an emotionally abusive husband. When the Yankees burn the plantation nearby, she runs away. Her destination is Nashville, but when she arrives dirty and with torn clothing, she is swept up with the other women in the purge of Smokey Row. Loaded onto a steamboat, then rejected from various ports, the women are sent back to Nashville and taken to a makeshift hospital. There, Hannah encounters Major Lucas Kelley, a handsome Union doctor. She becomes a nurse and travels with the army to various battlefields, war raging all around her. But her greatest fear is that her husband will find her. Can Hannah free herself from a vicious man and find love with Lucas, the doctor who can heal her heart? Set in the Civil War, historically accurate, "Hannah's War" illustrates how a woman can rise from a terrible situation, grow strong and find true love.
