Ivy is a dark-haired beauty gifted with strength and kindness.

This sets up a series of life-impacting decisions when she meets Joseph, a strong-spirited farm boy, who joins the Southern cause, earning the name “Blue-Eyed Demon” for his courage in the Confederate Cavalry. Three lives are brought together in a war that is tearing the nation apart.
