"Based on actual events, Glorieta is the story of Jacob and Adria, young lovers who find each other amid the chaos of the Civil War. Set thousands of miles away from that conflict's better-known engagements, it chronicles the ferocious contest that devastated the southwestern frontier. In 1861, Texans invade New Mexico, intending to use the territory as a base for attacks on Colorado, Utah, and California. However, even a string of early victories cannot conceal the fact that the Confederates have overreached and their advance stalls in Santa Fe. There, Jacob Stark - a young captain searching for redemtpion, meets Adria Carrizo, the restless daughter of a wealthy hacendado. Despite their social and cultural differences, torn between obligation and longing, Jacob and Adria fall recklessly in love"--back cover.
