Join us for a discussion of this inspirational title. Pick up a copy at the Highland Branch.

November 30, 1864. A brutal battle in Franklin, Tennessee all but decimates the Confederacy and nearly kills Captain Roland Ward Jones. Despite the severity of his wounds, Jones believes his life will be spared. But a life without his leg he can't abide. He compels Elizabeth "Lizzie" Clouston-- governess to the McGavock family at the Carnton mansion-- to intervene should the surgeon decide to amputate. When a fourteen-year-old soldier dies in Lizzie's arms that night, the boy's final words demand that Lizzie deliver them to their intended recipient. How can she set out alone across a land so divided by war and hatred to honor her pledge?

About the branch

The Highland Branch Library has long played an important role in downtown Highland. From its beginnings in rented storefronts to the Highland Memorial Library built in 1946 to its present location on Jewett and 4th Street, it has been an integral part of the community. The exterior of the library looks nearly as it did when it was first built in 1966. Although it is one of the oldest buildings in the library system, it's newly remodeled interior makes it one of the newest. The library still houses over 65,000 items, but now also features a large meeting room and children's program room, a study room, and WiFi, along with many public Internet computers. These features, along with the library's bright and inviting atmosphere and convenient location, make the Highland Branch Library a destination for the community and surrounding areas.
