Getting away from the farm is all Hollis Fairfield can think about. But when the only job she can find is doing laundry at Camp Pinewood, she becomes a witness to horrific events she never dreamed could be real. Powerless to change anything, she despairs until her attention is snared by a young girl whom she vows to help. But what can one woman do when so much stands against her?
Delilah Thorn is stuck in Atlanta engaged in diplomatic work and is desperate to get back into the field. She’s had no word from her fellow agents for weeks and there’s nothing she can do for them from afar. Now a prominent Confederate family is looking for assistance, and wants her to find their missing daughter. Thorn will have to go against orders to sneak back into enemy territory on a mission of mercy, unsanctioned by superiors and worth a court martial, even if she succeeds.
