The Tempering Years

Book Description:

The founder of AzArrow books has combined her knowledge and passion for history in the fictional epic The Tempering Years - of a Man and a Nation.

From the back cover:
Meet some folks who lived during "The Tempering Years" of our country, the decade of the Civil War -- a period fraught with strife, romance, greed, espionage, and disaster. More than any other era, these years molded our nation. The story follows Nathan, a seminary student, who leaves school to begin his real education as a private in the Union army.

Nathan - tested by life on and off the battlefield
Enoch - on rare occasions his heart rules his head
Jake - loves a good lark, hates stubborn mules
Frank - the youngest of "the three musketeers”
Wade - a man of mystery who gets a haircut
Jennie - this belle of the ball is no "dismal dasmal"
Rebecca - she gives up her name for the cause
Laura - a spy who makes beautiful music

Many incidents woven into this work of fiction are based on actual accounts - the ghosts in Bellville, the murder of General Nelson, Cahaba Prison life, the cowardly surrender of the fort at Athens, Alabama, and the Sultana Disaster, to name a few.
