A Civil War Novella --

Carrie Wilkes married a Southern man but she has had enough of stares and shunning. Robert Salinger might be her dying husband's friend and employer but why is he either boring his eyes into her or ignoring her? He says he blames himself for Ben's death. He swears he will look after Carrie and the children, but they go home from the funeral alone. 

Things look better after that deaf and dumb stranger, Robbie, hires on. But when he discovers Carrie's shameful secret will he be able to help with more than just farm chores? Or does he have a secret of his own that brings Confederate soldiers storming onto her farm with accusations of spying leveled at her dead husband?
