After the Rain: A Novel of War and Coming Home by John M. Archer

Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg...

Captain Daniel Spencer has seen enough of war. His patriotism shattered by senseless carnage, his health sapped by wounds, he had nothing left to give. Surely returning to his wife Sarah and their mountainside home in Pennsylvania will restore his perspective, his health - his humanity.

Spencer is finding that going home is not that simple. Nothing is the same; nightmares stalk his nights, grim memories shadow his days. Soon enough, his dark moods take their toll on Sarah and their marriage.

And now the war that so haunts Daniel has followed him home: the Confederate Army has invaded Pennsylvania. He listens as the sounds of battle rumble up the mountainside from nearby Gettysburg with his memories and growing guilt - had he deserted his comrades?

But now there is more disturbing news: Sarah's sister in Gettysburg is missing. For Daniel, Rebecca is more than a sister-in-law: she is a past love. Daniel must head into the battle's grim aftermath to find Rebecca - and an answer to the questions about love, war, and the meaning of survival.

About the Author

Although Yankee born and bred, John Archer's fascination with the Civil War stems from a childhood discovery of Confederate ancestors in his family tree.

His interpretive tours have been featured in PCN TV's Gettysburg Battlewalks Series. His written work includes two histories of the battle, "The Hour Was One of Horror: East Cemetery Hill at Gettysburg" and "Culp's Hill at Gettysburg," as well as articles in "Blue and Gray," "Gettysburg Magazine," and other periodicals. His first work of historical fiction, "After the Rain: A Novel of War and Coming Home," was released in September, 2011.
