Two generations...two different war stories...two different love stories. Letters written about love and war. This book follows William and Ginny's son, Liam, to Cuba in 1898 where he has joined Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders in fighting against Spain in the Spanish American War. As a field doctor, Liam will help many, see some die, and also surprisingly fall in love. Meanwhile back at home at The Forest Plantation in Charles City, Virginia, his father Dr. William Brown reads Liam's letters to the family and is reminded of a story from the War Between the States. This story involves his cousin Judy when she fell in love with a Union soldier. As William tells the story to his family, a secret is revealed that even Ginny doesn't know about.

Could not put this book down! Holds your attention until the very end. I love the characters and the way past and present come together. Cheryl keeps you wondering just what will happen next keeping this a real page turner till the end! You will want to read all her books in the Wellington series. Cheryl gets more talented with every book and has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I've even recommend her books to the local library so others can enjoy. I am so looking forward to her next book!
