The Last Confederate: The Story of Robert Adams | 2007
Robert was a South Carolina cotton planter, and soon to be captain, who fell in love with Eveline, an intelligent, kind and strong willed school teacher from Pennsylvania. Just as they met, The Civil War was upon them. All he knew was tied into the bloody conflict and the one thing that he held to was his love for this northern woman. He knew his struggle to protect his lands, and the life he had built, would be great. Robert saw that he might sacrifice all he had to this conflict but his commitment ran deep. His quest for survival grew as the war worsened. As the tables turned, he was ultimately captured and sent to prison; he lost his best friend; his town was burned and the war was all but lost. Robert's connection to Eveline weakened as he lost the path he believed he was on. Her love for him would be the one thing that could carry him through.
