Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970635842, Paperback)This middle-grade, historical novel tells the little-known story of the seventeen days following the signing of the Appomattox Treaty. Emma Graham, 12, refuses to believe in the collapse of the Confederacy and actively defies the Union Army until "Lee's men" begin to arrive home from years of fighing. Her effort to accept the South's defeat pales beside more personal struggles. Lt. George Round, the Union Army's signal messenger, repeatedly befriends the Graham family, contradicting Emma's belief in "demon Yankees." And the father who returns to Emma is a different man from the precious image Emma has held in her heart for more than three years. Can Emma ever accept the truth of her situation and be happy again?
