Summary
"In March 1865, the long and bitter War between the States is winding down. Until now, twenty-three-year-old Simon Boudlin has evaded military duty thanks to his slight stature, youthful appearance, and utter lack of compunction about bending the truth. But following a barroom brawl in Victoria, Texas, Simon finds himself conscripted into the Confederate Army. Luckily, his talent with a fiddle lands him in a regimental band. Weeks later, on the eve of the Confederate surrender, Simon and his bandmates are called to play at a dinner bringing together officers and their families from both sides of the conflict. Amid the crowd, the quick-thinking, audacious fiddler notices the lovely Doris Mary Dillon, the young governess to a Union colonel's daughter ... After the surrender, Simon and Doris go their separate ways. Yet as he travels around Texas, seeking fame and fortune as a musician, Simon cannot forget the fair Irish maiden, and vows that someday he will find her again"--Dust jacket flap
