Echoes Of The Falling SpringDody Myers

Dody Myers

A book about the twists and turns of the Civil War.

Abby Kennedy is a strong-willed farm girl from the small border town of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Revenge for an invader's rape of her sister induces Abby to become a Yankee spy and vow vengeance against anything or anyone Southern.

On the other side, Confederate Captain Ford McKenzie has been betrayed by one woman and promises that it will never happen again. Besides, he cherishes his plantation home on St. Simons Island and cannot imagine life anywhere but in the Deep South. Then he meets Abby.

During the Civil War the Confederate army invaded the North, passing through Chambersburg three times. The invasions resulted in the Battles of Antietam and Gettysburg as well as the destruction of the town itself in 1864. The twists and turns of the Civil War add greatly to the extraordinary obstacles placed on these individuals. Ford's loyal black slave, Esau, and Abby's free black servant, Ila, are drawn into the conflict of the times as well as a love of their own.

Echoes Of The Falling Spring follows these dual love stories, while they are constantly tested and clouded by the terrible conflict of the American Civil War.

The book cover jacket's painting is by Mort Kunstler, a famous Civil War artist. This painting was the inspiration for the story, graphically telling of the age-old heartache of couples separated by war.

"Very well written...readable narrative...passages on the burning of Chambersburg and life in coastal Georgia are well done...an appealing love story...significant insight into the Civil War, particularly in relation to the Cumberland Valley and the Chambersburg area." -Ted Alexander, author and historian
