Swept into Destiny

By Catherine Ulrich Brakefield


Forced to call each other enemies, can their love survive?

Maggie Gatlan may be a Southern belle on the outside, but inside she's a rebel. Then she meets the handsome, strong Irish immigrant Ben McConnell who captures her heart.

Ben is enchanted by Maggie's beauty and fiery spirit, but for him the South she so dearly loves represents the injustice and deprivation he left behind in Ireland.

As the country divides and Ben joins the Union, Maggie and Ben are forced to call each other enemies. Will their love survive or die on the battlefield of South against North?
