A Covenant of Love Publisher's Summary

From the first rumblings of unrest and secession in the South, this dramatic saga follows the Rocklins as they experience the intense emotions and spiritual struggles of the Civil War. Even as the nation is ripped apart only to grow stronger, so also is the Rocklin family.

The family stands by helplessly as cousins Clay and Gideon Rocklin vie for the hand of beautiful Melanie Benton. And Melanie's choice between the two men starts the rejected suitor on a spiraling descent into self-destruction that threatens to destroy his family as well.
