Don’t miss this heartfelt tale of adventure and loss as a southern belle escapes through East Texas swamplands.

Miss Jessica’s mother had died of fever 6 years before and her father had been killed in action so when her home was ransacked and burned by renegade Yankee soldiers and the servants all ran off, her protector became the lifelong family retainer, Joshua.

  1. I read this book when it first came out and found it quite compelling. It has a good mix of action and characterization, and keeps the reader's interest throughout.
