Mormon families--Fiction; United States--History--Civil War, 1861-1865--Fiction; Utah--History--19th century--Fiction
Battles rage as passions on the home front fill the heart of every American citizen. The Civil War progresses in tragic intensity as the Birmingham saga continues-two brothers, along with their families and loved ones, divided in their loyalties between North and South. In an effort to learn the truth about the war, reporter Anne Birmingham continues her charade as a soldier. But how long can she risk her life in battle, even as she hides her true identity?
Emily Birmingham is wracked with conflicting emotions by the opportunity to free her beloved friends-will it come at the cost of her own dreams and desires?
Meanwhile, emotions run high in the Western region as the citizens of the Utah Territory find themselves embroiled in a struggle for statehood, constantly denied them because of their beliefs and way of life.
From border to border and coast to coast, emotions and blood ties are strained as the young nation continues to rend itself at the seams.
To Make Men Free-volume two of the best-selling epic series Faith of Our Fathers-further explores this watershed event in American history and its dramatic impact on the lives of millions-young and old, faithful and skeptic, slave and free. [publisher blurb]
