During the battle of Lookout Mt. Tennessee, in November 1863, Carrie and her nine-year-old brother, Jay, hide in a cave nursing their ailing aunt and protecting the remains of their family’s belongings from marauding soldiers. Yankee private, Adam Hendricks, is severely wounded during the battle and left behind. Carrie and her brother find the wounded soldier and face the moral dilemma; leave him and let him die, or take him to their cave and risk discovery, pillaging, and eventual starvation. But Adam proves to be a gentleman, and more ill than their powers of nursing can handle. With her aunt unable to cope, Carrie faces another moral dilemma when Yankees set up camp on the mountain.

A Stranger On My Land is an interesting historical that chronicles this corner of the Civil War, and a southern family opposed to slavery, yet forced to fight for the southern cause. It is also a story of reconciliation containing spiritual and moral truths woven into the fabric of a sweet romance.
