Summary
When war erupted, she trades a life of privilege for a life of significance. Tending to the Union army's sick and wounded meant leaving the man Charlotte Waverly's mother approved of, Phineas Hastings. Charlotte chose a life of service over privilege--just as childhood friend Caleb Lansing had when he became a military doctor. By working in the army hospitals, Charlotte discovers she's combatting more than just the rebellion. Would the two men who love her be able to stand by and watch as she fights her own battles at home, in the hospitals, and on the battlefront? Or would their desire for her wage war on her desire to server God?

Summary
"This is the first book in a series based on the real life stories of women who lived and worked during the Civil War. The author has done extensive research around the lives of military women during the Civil War for a nonfiction title and became inspired to share their stories in a fictionalized depiction based on her historical research. Charlotte Waverly is a 28 year-old upper-class woman from New York and one of only 100 women chosen for nursing training. On the battlefields, she and the other nurses find themselves up against corruption, opposition and wounded men such as they have never seen before. Charlotte's life intersects with that of an Irish immigrant who turns to the unthinkable when faced with starvation after her husband leaves for war. These women find hope and gain restored lives as war wages all around"--
