Summary
A group of 19th Century emigres flee the oppression of the Hapsburg Empire for America, where they become immersed in the chaos of the Civil War. Their story is told through the eyes of two protagonists, a young Czech woman who marries the son of a plantation owner and her soldier brother who falls in love with a slave. The novel is based on documented memories of Czech soldiers who fought for the Union in the 26th Wisconsin Battalion under General Sherman. By the author of The Engineer of Human Souls
