This romantic novel is set in and near the author's hometown of Wilmington, NC, during the years immediately before, during, and after the Civil War. Although the plot focuses primarily on the lives and loves of the principal characters, slavery and the war that resulted from slavery have important consequences for them. North Carolina was not, however, as deeply invested in slavery as the states of the Deep South, and the the principal characters in this novel held no slaves. The plot accordingly focuses on the wooings, beddings, and weddings that take place among the principal characters rather than the moral, political, and social issues of the time. By the conclusion of the book, most, but not all, of the characters achieve domestic tranquility and marital bliss despite the turmoil of the Civil War.
