Mists of the Blue Ridge
Tecla Emerson, author
Olivia lived a quiet and protected life tucked away on a farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was far from the great war that had been raging between the North and the South. She had little interest in the who and the why of it all, and wasn’t even sure where her sympathies lay. Then, without warning, the conflict surrounded her. At 16, she was ill prepared for the responsibilities that were thrust on her. This is her story. It’s a tale that tells of courage, determination and survival during one of America’s most trying times.
