Contraband Desire

A novel by

Elizabeth Whitley, an abolishionist from Philadelphia, made a long journey to war-torn Memphis to help the newly-freed slaves in the area. She hopes to teach them to read and write to help them in their freedom, and she loves working with the "contrabands," as the former slaves are called. Elizabeth soon finds herself unexplicably drawn to Quinn Erskine, the commander at the refugee camp. When Quinn first sees beautiful Elizabeth, he's convinced that she won't stay. No one from the Northern "do good" societies ever stay for very long. He soon learns, however, that Elizabeth is quite the determined lady and isn't so easily put off. Quinn still isn't sure if Elizabeth is strong enough to help him ease the pain and bitterness gnawing away in his heart. A native of Tennessee, Quinn chooses to be loyal to the Union - and loses nearly everything. Can Quinn and Elizabeth rebuild their lives in this war-torn land, or will their love be destroyed just like everything else?
