"In the bloody Civil War Battle of Shiloh in western Tennessee two soldiers are among the many thousands wounded or killed. One, shot and his leg broken, is a Yankee, Stanley Mitchell. The other is Aaron Matthews, a Confederate, mortally wounded, the son of a local Christian family. When Aaron's mother, Davina, comes in search of her son, she finds Stanley instead, who tells her where Aaron is--on the condition that she take Stanley back to her farm and nurse him back to health. Aaron doesn't survive the wagon ride. Neither Davina nor her other children, who are outraged at Stanley's presence in their home, could have anticipated the results of his presence there: the kindling of romance between Stanley and Davina's teenaged daughter, Anna; the challenge Stanley's presence brings to Davina's relationship with the Jacksons, her family of slaves; the uncontrollable enmity with which Davina's son Luke regards Stanley; the warmth that develops between Stanley and Davina herself. Until Shiloh Comes, the first novel in the Shiloh Trilogy, is a story of love--love between Stanley and Anna, and love among the members of the two families on the farm, one white, one black. It is a story of personal choices and their consequences. And it's the story of the fight to save Stanley from the grief-fueled anger of Southerners who would rather kill a Yankee than allow him to live among them. Once you have begun to read Until Shiloh Comes, you won't be able to put it down.".
