During the Civil War, Lewis McCormack has to return to his regiment's training camp, leaving his wife Eliza to tend to their homestead. Rearing children, surviving a declining economy, and paying the family debts leads to intolerable hurdles and even more difficult decisions. Amid the chaos of war, Lewis just wants to stay alive-to make it back to his family.

Meanwhile, Private Davey Morris is detailed as courier and travels through war-torn Pennsylvania to complete his mission, while Private Tandy Strider uses his thirty-day wounded furlough to search for the young prostitute that he has deemed his soulmate.

As the war progresses, Lewis realizes that his soul has hardened-and deep inside, he only feels emptiness. Will Lewis make it through the war? And when he returns, in what state will he find his family? Will they even survive?

In a raw, realistic narrative, The Roads of War exposes the authenticity of battle-the hardships, the struggle, and the yearning for tranquility. John Cameron weaves a true-to-life quilt of human emotion, universal tribulation-and the power of love.
