What follows is a vast panorama of one of the most turbulent periods of American history as seen through the eyes of this star-crossed young woman. Amantha soon finds herself in New Orleans, where she spends the war years with Hamish Bond, a slave trader.

At wars end, she marries Tobias Sears, a Union officer and Emersonian idealist. Despite sporadic periods of contentment- Amantha finds life with Tobias trying, and she is haunted still by her tangled past. Oh, who am I?
