The Rebel Yank
gallops across the grand panorama of the American Civil War with all the rousing excitement of a full-out cavalry charge. It’s June 1860, and young Paul Douglas finds his loyalties sharply divided as his country splits in two. He and his domineering father, his devoted sister, and his steadfast friends are thrust into a whirlwind of conflicting allegiances and divergent paths. Circumstances force Paul to make some hard decisions. Should he marry the enticing daughter of an iron ore magnate to bolster his family’s fortunes, or should he declare his secret lifelong love for the beautiful daughter of a Chippewa healer? Should he stay North with his family and fiancée and fight to keep the country united, or should he follow his conscience and support the South’s War for Independence? Paul’s choices lead him on a kaleidoscopic odyssey through battlefields and bedrooms as he seeks his own separate peace in a nation torn apart by war.
