New. No dust jacket. Signed by author. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. Contains: Illustrations, black & white. Audience: General/trade. Things have gotten ugly in Blaineton, New Jersey. It is in the middle of the Civil War and the abolitionist sympathies of the people in Maggie s boarding house have made them a target for Copperhead forces. When the violence threatens to get worse, Maggie s husband Eli proposes that the family move to Gettysburg to help his two sisters aid fugitive slaves. They risk the move, hoping to find some badly-needed peace. But that peace seems far away as Confederate and Union forces march into Pennsylvania.
