Days of Eternity
Zane and Larissa Edwards, rearing their children Mac and Rose on the family farm, foresee the future spinning out as contentedly as their past. Civil War erupts, shattering their lives and dreams. Zane joins the Sixth Ohio Volunteer Cavalry and is sent to Fort Laramie in Nebraska Territory. His friend Ethan Michaels, a widower with a young daughter, Charity, having promised Zane he will help Larissa with the work, moves to the farm as a hired hand. Ten-year-old Mac begins studying medicine under the town's crusty doctor. Larrisa cannot know if Zane will survive the horrors of war. Ethan cannot seem to reconcile his growing love for Larissa, the wife of his best friend, both of whom trust him implicitly. Mac fears his dreams of becoming a doctor will turn to ashes when the war threatens to destroy all he holds dear.
