I’m a singer. Not a good one by any means, but I sing all the time. This time of year, it’s none stop Christmas carols. I sing them in the car, in the shower, while cooking dinner…
Needless to say, my kids are about sick of it. But every so often, the older one will put aside her preteen ego and join me in one of my favorite tunes – I’ll Be Home for Christmas. We use our best Bing Crosby voices and go to town. I love those moments of family bonding – you just know you’re making a memory.
Memories are an important part of Jeanne Hardt’s book, From the Ashes of Atlanta.
After losing his Atlanta home and family to the war, Confederate soldier, Jeb Carter, somehow wakes up in a Boston hospital. Alone, desperate, and with a badly broken leg, he pretends to be mute to save himself from those he hates—Yankees.
Gwen Abbott, a student at Boston Women’s Medical College, is elated when she’s allowed to study under the guidance of a prominent doctor at Massachusetts General. While forced into a courtship with a man she can scarcely tolerate, her thoughts are consumed with their mysterious new patient. If only he could talk.
Two strangers from different worlds, joined by fate. Perhaps love can speak without words and win a war without a single shot being fired.
