If the truth hurts, this devastating story is like a knife to the heart. At a time when small deeds seem insignificant in the face of great atrocities, a small group of Christians help each other find hope. This story of a Good Samaritan shines brightly as the characters place themselves in danger.

Dance Pickett, a Confederate sentry posted at Andersonville Prison, knows the horrors inflicted on the Union soldiers held within but believes an ordinary man like himself can do nothing to relieve them. When his romantic interest, Violet Stiles, discovers the prison conditions and the town’s indifference toward them, she rushes forward with indignation to create change.
