Product description

From AudioFile

In 1864, after her father is arrested by Union militia troops, 18-year-old Adair Colley is forced to trek North to safety with her two younger sisters. While on the road, she is falsely accused of being a collaborator and sent to prison. Poet and memoirist Paulette Jiles crafts a harrowing epic that spotlights the disastrous effects of war upon the innocent. Chapters begin with excerpts from letters and Civil War documents, offering a credible, unsentimental look into an area we know little about--the wartime treatment of women. Karen White's reading is intelligent and precise. She does little or no character interpretation, however, leaving the narration lackluster when it could be exciting, dispassionate when it should be engaging. Nevertheless, exceptional writing and absorbing subject matter make for fascinating listening.

From the Back Cover

For the Colleys of southeastern Missouri, the War between the States is a plague that threatens devastation, despite the family’s avowed neutrality. For eighteen-year-old Adair Colley, it is a nightmare that tears apart her family and forces her and her sisters to flee. The treachery of a fellow traveler, however, brings about her arrest, and she is caged with the criminal and deranged in a filthy women’s prison.

But young Adair finds that love can live even in a place of horror and despair. Her interrogator, a Union major, falls in love with her and vows to return for her when the fighting is over. Before he leaves for battle, he bestows upon her a precious gift: freedom.

Now an escaped "enemy woman," Adair must make her harrowing way south buoyed by a promise . . . seeking a home and a family that may be nothing more than a memory.
