Placidia falls hard and fast for Major Gryffth Hockaday, and they marry after a days-long courtship. She is soon alone on his vast farm, caring for his infant son, and waiting for the stranger she married to return from the Civil War.
Letters, diary entries and court proceedings help piece together the Civil War story of Dia, a teenage bride and her struggles while her husband is away at war.
