At Sharpsburg, Rory is killed and Katie finds herself alone in the world. With her strong Irish blood she wants to avenge Rory’s death by remaining with the Confederate Army. Six months has passed and Katie is nearly killed when she falls off her horse and lands in a raging river. She is rescued by a Southern man, Alexander Hart.
Unknown to Katie, Alexander is a Yankee spy. With threatening weather fast approaching, the two find shelter in a deserted cabin. Morning arrives and they find themselves snowed in. When Katie comes down with a fever, Alexander once again serves as her protector. The close quarters and the isolation bring the two together. When they find out that their loyalties are on opposite sides, will they see each other as the enemy?
Through Susan Macatee’s words you are able to relive the past. CONFEDERATE ROSE is a magnificent work of fiction. Her words allow you to feel the tension that was occurring during these turbulent times. Blended with a well developed romance, this historical is one that will grab hold of your heart and tear at your emotions. I highly recommend this charming historical and it will allow you to revisit the past while you stay in the present.
