Publisher's Summary

This is a fictional series of letters starting in 1861 between brothers from South Mississippi. The oldest brother, Author, is fighting for the South, while James, the youngest, has run away from home and joined the Union army. The letters between the two brothers, and the girl they are both sweet on, Beth, as well as to their Ma and Pa, are full of horrors of war, the unbelievable cruelties put upon the slaves, and some redeeming qualities of humans mixed in. 

This was a heartbreaking book to write. I am from the South (Gulfport Mississippi) and it is unnerving for me to imagine the South at this time in history. Even today it pains me when I think of some of the things I've witnessed myself as a young boy. God help us that we never return to such brutality, and hopefully, we can put a stop to the injustices of all people across the globe.
