By turns comic and tragic, this novella centers on Sophie Floyd, a young woman who works at a Confederate Veterans Home in Culpeper, Va. It is 1913, and Sophie is in love with two doctors, the earnest and respectable Doc Minor, and the mysterious Dr. Satterfield, who supplies morphine to addicts. Dr. Satterfield pronounces an old man dead, only to have the man revive, celebrate at a brothel, and tell the press. The hardworking Sophie must tend the Home's elderly Matron while she decides which man she really loves.
