A Beautiful Yankee, A Southern Gentleman--Caught in a Struggle that will Divide a Nation
Men & women of the Southern aristocracy swept up in public intrigues & private passions--in a struggle that will climax in heartrending war.
Diana Ogden, a dazzling actress from the North, emerges from a whirlwind courtship with the dashing Gervais Buchanan to find herself an outsider among the heirs of Meadowlands, one of the most magnificent plantations of South Carolina. As seething rebellion threatens to explode into bloody Civil War, Diana learns of a horrible secret--a legacy of shame that haunts the Buchanan clan.
Ant there is more: behind the lovely facade of Meadowlands hides a cruel and ugly reality; a young girl has the face of an angel, but the soul of a devil, and a half-crazed slave lurks in the shadows, plotting to master the fair-haired woman who is his obsession.
As the fuse of war burns ever shorter, Meadowlands is suddenly a living nightmare--a nightmare from which Diana and the Buchanans may never awaken.
