I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires

Also Available In

Robert Glover is now seventeen years old and the Civil War has begun. Robert ^unwittingly becomes a pawn of a Confederate escape plan. Angry and ashamed, he works ^his way south, only to discover that his mother has become mentally unstable. Sherman's ^march of destruction through the Carolinas promises to bring Union troops directly ^to their door. Robert must come to terms with his mother and his own responsibilities ^before God.
Born on a farm in the North Carolina Piedmont, CATHY GOHLKE was ^third in a family of four children. Cathy's first novel, William Henry is a ^Fine Name, was awarded the 2007 Christy Award for Best Young Adult novel, was ^a finalist for the 2007 Christy Award for Best First Novel, and was awarded second ^place for the American Christian Fiction Writers 2007 Book of the Year Long Historical. ^Her second novel, I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires, was released in September ^2008 and was chosen by Library Journal as one of the best Christian fiction ^books of 2008. Cathy and her husband, Dan, live in Elkton, Maryland and have two ^grown children.
The bonds linking family and the lines separating enemies have become very ^blurry for 17-year-old Robert. With his father away fighting for the Union, Robert ^must decide to act alone in order to help his ailing mother, extricate his injured ^Confederate Uncle, and bring relief to his cousin, Emily. When he unwittingly gets ^entangled in a Confederate escape plot, Robert must forge his anger and shame into ^a new determination to save his family. And, perhaps, he must also realize that ^the saving might not be entirely up to him. Honor and duty to God and country aren't ^as clear-cut as he hoped them to be.
