You would think Cecilia LaRoque has it all: a loving father, wealth,
beauty, social position and a devoted suitor. She doesn’t. Crushed by a
cold and critical mother who soon absconds to live with a dissolute lover,
‘Cissy’ struggles to prove herself worthy of love and respect. She could
not have foreseen in her teenage years that the genteel and privileged life
she had led would come to a crashing halt with the outbreak of Civil War, a
bitter struggle that would tear her world apart. Despite the hardships, she
seizes the opportunity to forge an unorthodox role for herself as a spy.
Spying is not for the faint of heart, but then surviving in the midst of war isn't either.
