Southern Comfort by Beth Bennett
The issue of slavery has divided the nation and war is upon the land.
Charlotte MaCausland, the smart, sensible, southern daughter of a mathematics professor, is thrown directly into the center of the conflict. Cadet Brice Bidwell only has eyes for Charlotte and intends to make her his own, even if that requires a little old fashioned discipline if she refuses to cooperate. Brice must choose between his love for Charlotte and duty to his conscience. Their lives take different paths, but cross again in Richmond, during the climax of the war. Barely escaping Libby prison, Brice secrets Charlotte away in the middle of the night.
Will Charlotte’s anger at Brice’s betrayal spell doom or will true love and a little southern comfort win the day?
