But after his job literally goes up in smoke?and with some persuasion from his wife, Elizabeth, and his best friend, Hunter McGuire?Travis agrees to serve with the Confederate forces of General Stonewall Jackson as part of the medical corps. Forgiveness follows the journey of this reluctant hero as he is forced to confront the horrors of war and do what he can to save the lives of the wounded men of the Civil War.

Discover in this compelling narrative historical fiction some little-known facts and information about Civil War events, such as the involvement of the Freemasons in the production of the first submarine, and how the war might have ended after the Battle of Gettysburg. Learn how Stonewall Jackson was so successful, and see from both a doctor?s and a soldier?s perspective the effects of soldier?s disease?or addiction?on the lives of the men and families consumed by war.
