New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham concludes her magnificent McKenzie Chronicles with this impassioned story about two star-crossed lovers caught in the tumult of the Civil War.

When a Confederate platoon is unable to return to their Florida militia base, they camp down in an old, dilapidated plantation house. They soon discover the presence of a young beautiful widow, considered a witch by the locals because of her natural healing talents and her uncanny ability to "see" things others cannot. Captivated by this mysterious woman, the platoon's doctor refuses to abandon her, despite her Union sympathies. Heedless of the conflict raging around them, the couple will discover a love which cannot be denied.

Booklist Review

In the fifth installment of her McKenzie Chronicles series, best-seller Graham throws Dr. Julian McKenzie, Confederate soldier, into contact with widowed Rhiannon Tremaine, Union sympathizer and rumored witch with the power to heal. Julian kidnaps Rhiannon to help him heal his cousin, and to help her kick her opium addiction. Rhiannon relives her husband's death in battle nightly in her dreams, a torment only opium alleviates. Lately, her husband's image has metamorphosed into Julian's, and she can't be sure if her phantom dream lover is the ghost of her husband or the flesh of Julian. As the war calls Julian and Rhiannon into service in hospital tents on opposite sides, Rhiannon dreams Julian's death and plots to go to any length to keep him safe, even if she must betray him. The concluding novel in the series, this tale does not live up to its potential, and unless the first four books are already on the shelf, it's not worth the effort. --Melanie Duncan

Publisher's Weekly Review

In Confederate Florida, a healer reputed to be a witch fights her own civil war against the man she loves, in the conclusion of Graham's McKenzie Chronicles (Surrender etc.). Widow Rhiannon Tremaine, who harbors Union sympathies, betrays a Confederate platoon encamped at her plantation house and is taken prisoner by Julian McKenzie, the doctor who heads the platoon. Denying their mutual passion, they later separate, until the heroine's extrasensory powers bring them together. Graham knows how to spin an effective love story, but her unnecessary plot summaries of the previous McKenzie tales slow the momentum. Some unresolved threads‘and the fact that the war has not ended by the book's end‘give hope that the series will continue after all. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
