This book follows the story of Sterling Louchs and Benjamin Taylor who have different issues in their lives. Caught up between the Civil War and personal dilemmas, their paths will cross and their lives will intertwine to deal with diverse circumstances and try to make the best of what they have.

In 1863 Sterling Louchs, a student at the Pennsylvania Agricultural College is making his way home following the suspension of classes due to the Confederate offensive into southern Pennsylvania.
