The war is over. Now the struggle for peace begins.
In Shattered Nation, the Confederacy won the battle for Atlanta, Lincoln lost his bid for reelection, and the Union sued for peace. In Blessed are the Peacemakers, John C. Breckinridge will journey to Canada to take part in a conference intended to bring the war to an end. Can the two rival sides overcome differences over slavery, the border states, and other issues?
Can Breckinridge contend with divisions among the Confederate delegates? Is the quest for peace doomed from the beginning?
Blessed are the Peacemakers is a novella which takes place in the same alternate history as Shattered Nation. It is intended to serve as a bridge between Shattered Nation and its sequel novel, House of the Proud, which will hopefully be published in late 2015 or early 2016.
