Why would wealthy Philip Creighton leave his bride of only seven
months to join the Union army at the outset of the Civil War--with
the hope of being killed? That is the question at the heart of
Creighton's Crossroads, Betty Larosa's novel of love, war, betrayal
and retribution. Creighton's Crossroads is the first book in a
four-part family saga. Philip Creighton is jarred from the
privileged existence he's always known and is forced to re-assess
his view of life after sharing war-time experiences with a
cross-section of soldiers from different states. These experiences
take him from fashionable Washington soirees to the bloody trenches
of Petersburg, Virginia, but his emotional journey is even longer
and more difficult. Larosa, who lives in Bridgeport, West Virginia,
near the heart of Civil War country, with her husband Gene, felt
inspired to write about the human wreckage left in the wake of that
war. During her research, she visited many of the battlefields and
all the locations mentioned in the four books.
