Summary (From the publisher):

In this sequel to his much-praised Soldier Boys, David Richards brings to life the Battle of Batoche. He also achieves the near-impossible feat of enlisting equal sympathy for both sides in Canada's brief, but haunting, experience of civil war.

This novel is essentially a human story, of three young people who are changed forever by the brutal simplicities of battle. Tom Kerslake, the young bugler, learns that revenge for a dead friend is a hollow victory. Luc, the young Metis warrior, is torn between family pride and a yearning for peace and life with the girl he loves. And Marie, the girl in question, moves between the wounded on both sides and looks for a sign from heaven. Only two people -- Tom and Marie -- see the Lady who appears in the midst of the battle, but her presence changes everything for them both.
