At the end of the Civil War, Simon, a 23 year-old musician conscripted into the Confederate army, escapes from his regiment and, with his rag-tag band of friends, struggles to make a home and a living in the worst of circumstances. Simon dreams of a place of his own with the woman he loves by his side. Fans of Jiles’ News of the World will enjoy the characters, romance, and rich texture of this story.
