The Letters of Absolon

Three stories, two sides, one country.  Southerner Absolon Wilkes wants only to marry and live a peaceful life in North Carolina but the Civil War denies him both. When he voices his objection to the cause of the Confederacy, he is labeled a traitor and a coward. As the accusations against him grow, the safety of his fiancée, Anne, is threatened and Absolon is forced to leave his home, vowing to come back to her after the war. He solicits a promise from his closest friend, Royal Pollard to protect her until his return. Burdened with duty, Royal valiantly stands between Anne and harm despite being branded a Union sympathizer and a coward for declining his commission. His pain runs still deeper as he struggles to suppress his love for Anne.
