The Silence of Sorrowful Hours by April Kutger

The Silence of Sorrowful Hours tells the story of Ethan, a runaway slave, and Gideon, a man with a checkered past, of Angelise, a creole woman from Martinique, and Marabella, a beautiful actress. They live together on Osborne Hoffmann's farm and fight the war as a group of "irregulars" - spying on and disrupting the Confederates, sometimes on very dangerous missions. When Osborne volunteers as a nurse for the Union Army after a devastating loss, they farm his land, growing crops to aid the Union Army and chopping down trees to make coffins for soldiers - both Union and Rebel troops - killed in the Battle of Gettysburg. Lost love, anger, grief, and exhaustion take their toll on everyone, and the end of the war doesn't mean the end of suffering.
