Savannah, 1854. Throughout the city's elegant streets, stirrings of the Civil War are taking hold. For three families, the Brownings, the Mackays, and the Stileses, the war has already begun within their hearts, drawing battle lines where once there was love. Mark Browning's unwavering faith in the Union sparks a battle of conscience that threatens all that he holds dear . . . and challenges the loyalty of his headstrong daughter, Natalie. The elderly Mackay matriarch, Miss Eliza, is Mark's only ally in a city divided within itself. For the Stileses, their lives are forever changed as the legacies of the past clash with an uncertain future.
A beautiful tale of “momentum, power and passion,” Stranger in Savannah reveals a realistic portrait “of how the Civil War broke the hearts of Rebels and Yankees alike.” (PW)
