In the Face of Death
Madelaine de Montalia, the main character in "Out of the House of Life" in Yarbro's popular Saint-Germain vampire series, once again has her own book, set in America 1847-65. Born in France in 1724, beautiful and intelligent, she chooses to live among the Indians and record their culture, traditions and knowledge. In 1855 San Francisco she meets and falls in love with William T. Sherman, ex-Army officer now running a bank. Sherman is married, with children; and their affair must end. She is among the Choctaw in Georgia when the Civil War breaks out. But what will happen, now that Sherman commands the armies that are marching directly toward her home?
