When former Confederate officer Robert Truax pays a visit to Miriam Markham, the widow of one of his fallen comrades, he begins to dream of a future he'd long since given up.
It all started with a pact made while burying a fallen comrade. Six men promised they would look out for each other after the war. Robert Truax means to keep his vow ... even if he must now look after Miriam Markham, his lieutenant's beloved widow.
When he arrives at Miriam's house in Galveston, Texas, things are worse than he imagined. Rumors abound that her husband, Phillip, was a traitor, and Miriam is receiving threatening notes. She's being treated as a pariah in town and also getting a lot of pressure to sell her house and leave the island. Upon meeting Robert, Miriam feels that she's finally made a friend. But soon she learns that he's nothing like she originally thought. He not only served in the Confederate States Army, but he was in the same prison camp where her husband died-and he seems to know more about Phillip's death than he's letting on.
Now Miriam must determine whether to trust Robert enough to give him her heart and let him help her ... or to remain loyal to the memory of her husband, the man she is slowly realizing she actually didn't know well at all.
