Brothers of Cain
The year was 1862 when federal troops became engaged in battles of the Peninsula Campaign. General George B. McClellan is planning the Union attack on the Confederate Capital of Richmond. President Lincoln has created a special intelligence force that includes Treasury employee Bronwen Llyr, who is working undercover. Kathryn, her sister and volunteer nurse for the Union, joins Bronwen in their family effort to secure the release of a younger brother who has been captured.
This is the eighth book in the Seneca Falls mystery series. The major characters are fictitious, but historical figures appear throughout. Fear, stress, injury and sometimes death are presented in the lives of those compelled to get involved. Details of the war and lives for those serving their country, or touched by the misfortune of living in the times, are well described. In this combination of history and mystery the author has created a story with much appeal.
