Set in Civil War times, near Monterey, California, and on the war fields of Virginia, "Beneath a Crescent Moon", is an historical romance that tells the love story of Renalso Kilpatrick and Elizabeth Brandt. It also tells the story of McKeon, who goes to war with his friend and is terribly wounded; and Jason Clark, a young Southern boy who goes to war to avenge his brother's death and comes out a scarred young man. It is a story of love, friendship, war and tenacity. It is a story of survival.
