In Fire by Night, the drama of the Civil War unfolds through the
eyes of two very different Northern girls. Lovely Julia Hoffman has always
enjoyed the carefree life of her well-to-do family, but when she fails to
attract the attention of Reverend Nathaniel Greene, a fierce abolitionist, she
determines to bring meaning to her empty and shallow existence. When she
becomes a Union nurse, her eyes are opened to the realities of war and
suffering. She also meets Phoebe, who has entered the army under false
pretenses—and whose journey to understanding herself, as well as the tumultuous
world about her, is revealed with sensitivity and drama.
