Summary
It's been twenty years since Cass Wakefield returned from the Civil War to his hometown in Mississippi, but he is still haunted by battlefield memories. Now he is presented with a chance to literally retrace his steps from the past, as his dying friend Alison urges him to accompany her on a trip to Franklin, Tennessee, to recover the bodies of her father and brother. As they make their way north over the battlefields, they are joined by two of Cass's former brothers-in-arms, and his memories reemerge with overwhelming vividness. Before long the group has assembled on the haunted ground of Franklin, where past and present--the legacy of the war and the narrow hope of redemption--will draw each of them toward a painful confrontation. Moving between harrowing scenes of battle and the novel's present-day quest, author Bahr recreates this era with devastating authority.--From publisher description
