Simon was conscripted late in the Civil War and after his last battle he and fellow musicians are tapped to play at a dinner. He sees Doris, the nanny of a Union officer, and is immediately smitten. This book is the story of Simon making his way to San Antonio in hopes that Doris feels the same about him. A beautifully written tale with lots of history woven together with authentic characters and descriptive landscapes.
