The Crisis is a romance set amidst the turmoil of the American Civil War.
The divisions that threatened to tear apart the country prior to the Civil War were nowhere more apparent than in St. Louis. On the border between North and South, civilization and the frontier, it was host to passionate sympathizers on both sides of the slavery issue. When a young abolitionist lawyer falls for the daughter of a Southern gentleman, the turbulent political atmosphere creates a seemingly impossible barrier. Can a meeting with Abraham Lincoln change everything?
A meticulously-researched work, filled with real historical figures, The Crisis is a gripping read for history buffs and romantics alike.

Brst book ever
Hi! I'm Jo head of the Library crisis society. Also known as the L.C.S. Here's the reason the L.C.S is our name, our headquarters is at a library, we solve crisies, and we are a society. DUH. The reason is pretty obvious huh? Now let me tell you a little about myself and my friends. We all have elemental powers. I have day/light, my friend selene has moon/stars, and my friend Henry has earth/nature power. But my ultimate enemy, Toby the Necromancer, has dark and midnight hour power. Now back to the story, I had a vision that a sleeping darkness has awakened, which is toby the Necromancer and that I would die soon. I know that its shocking, but it is true. When the head of the L.C.S dies their name magically appears on a plaque in honor of them. My name will be on that plaque soon. I must consult Henry, my top general. - obibunkenobi11
