I thought Conflict showed how war could split families, loved ones, friends, and a nation up brilliantly. It also showed how differing loyalties could not only split people up, but how they could help the same wounds heal.
This book, as well as its prequel Cane, is a wonderful story about love, friendship, loyalty and not only finding your way back to the one you love, but having the choice to do so.
Two men, one war. Can love survive when each takes a different side?
Leaving his lover behind to support the abolitionist cause, Piet Van Leyden finds himself leading one of the first all-black Union troops into the heart of battle. Reuniting with free slave and former love Joss brings some comfort, but will his presence tempt Piet into forgetting the love waiting for him at home?
Sebastian Cane wonders how he's able to go on without Piet by his side. When a series of unfortunate events lands him a prisoner of the Union, Seb knows he must rely on his wits and his love for Piet to survive...and get home to him.
