Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg…
Captain Daniel Spencer had seen enough of war. His patriotism shattered by senseless carnage, his health drained by wounds, he had nothing left to give. Surely returning to his wife Sarah and their mountainside home will restore his perspective, his health – his humanity.

Spencer is finding that coming home won’t be that simple; somehow everything has changed. Soon, nightmares stalk his nights, unspeakable memories shadow his days. His dark moods take their toll on Sarah and their marriage.
And now the war that so haunts Daniel has followed him home: the Confederate Army has invaded Pennsylvania. He listens as the sounds of battle rumble up the mountainside from nearby Gettysburg with his memories and a growing guilt – had he deserted his comrades?

Daniel Spencer must head into the battle’s grim aftermath to find an answer to his questions about war and the meaning of survival…
