At the OUTBREAK of the Civil War, Amanda Graham's husband dies a hero's death. Left with no source of income, she smuggles medical supplies for Lieutenant Colonel William Jackson and the Confederacy. Although a rogue, Wil is a man of courage and fiercely loyal to Amanda. Lieutenant Samuel Prescott, a soldier of honor and former comrade before the war, fights for the Union. As opposing forces move into Virginia, Sam clashes with Wil on more than the battlefield, when both men fall in love with Amanda. Torn by grief and loyalty, Amanda struggles with the harsh reality that her way of life has been altered forever by the growing storm.

Word Museum says "Riveting"!

"Men... once comrades must now chose between honor and loyalty, and women are caught between dedication to a cause and the people they love. ...it is a love story, but there is so much more. The historical detail is fascinating. The pathos and danger are heartrendingly real. The forthright depiction of men and women in conflict, not only with each other but with themselves, is riveting."

-- Patricia J. Detweiler, Word Museum Reviews

"You won't want to put it down!"

"Emotional and engrossing... PROMISE AND HONOR plumbs the depths of conflict of the American Civil War. Not just the obvious physical conflict of battle, but the often-hidden battles within the heart and mind -- and the struggle to find the true meaning of loyalty. You won't want to put it down!"

--Carolan Ivey, author of BEAUDRY'S GHOST
