Edition: First printing.
New York: Delacorte, (2000) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's first novel, set in Kentucky against the backdrop of the Civil War. It opens in 1859, when "seven-year-old Alma Flynt arrives in the small Kentucky town of Cotterpin Creek to begin a new life in her aunt's home. There, a whole new world opens up before her eyes-a world of impossible grace and comfort, of lush pastures and billowing bluegrass. And there, Alma will meet a family who will shape the course of her life. But like a swift storm cloud, the Civil War descends on Cotterpin Creek. . Swept into the chaos are the Clevelands, and John Warren himself, leaving their fading mansion and sprawling horse farm behind. And when the fighting is over, for Alma, yet another journey begins on the day a strange, battered, starved, and tormented young soldier staggers back into her life."
