It is time for celebration as Elsie prepares to marry her beloved Edward. Following their wedding, the happy couple honeymoons at Viamede, the childhood home of Elsie’s mother in the bayou region of Louisiana. Here Elsie’s faith matures, and she learns to share her belief with others in a meaningful way.

Four children—Elsie, Edward, Violet, and Harold—are born to Elsie and Edward, who experience the joys and heartaches of parenthood. Meanwhile, the country teeters on the brink of civil war. Mindful of the tragedies unfolding around her, Elsie is touched by the painful divisions brought on by the War Between the States and the devastating loss of family and friends that accompanies it.

    " I just finished reading this one. It was good, but also sad reading about the civil war how that brothers fought against each other. The book might not be true but its sad knowing that things like that really did happen. "
