Christine Boyd is the envy of all the ladies in Riverford, Texas, in 1885. She is, after all, the daughter of a revered Confederate general and the wife of a wealthy banker, Richard Boyd. Beautiful, accomplished, elegant-she exhibits the exquisite manners she was taught in antebellum Charleston. She is the perfect southern lady. Or is she? The truth is that Christine's genteel outward demeanor hides a revolutionary spirit. When she was ten years old and fleeing Union-invaded Charleston, she made a radical promise to God. She plans to keep that promise. Tradition-bound Riverford, Texas, may never be the same. Published in connection with Hartline Literary Agency. Visit us at www.hartlineliterary.com.
