Pamela Fosterabout this book: Ridgeline is Pamela Foster's third book dealing with post-traumatic stress in combat veterans. This time the author takes us back to the days after the American civil war and into the heart and mind of Jeremiah, a member of Arkansas's third regiment. Haunted by the ghosts of the buddy he left to burn in the fires of The Wilderness and the first Yankee he shot, Jeremiah is torn between his need for God and his feelings of betrayal by this same God.
Adeline is a young girl whose family has been torn apart by war. Alone and left with few choices, she steals Jeremiah's horse and strikes out on her own.
• "With her unique talent for storytelling, Foster goes back in time and paints her word pictures with elegance in this tale of love, redemption and faith in a West rarely presented by writers today. A touching, troubling look at the influence of war on men and women of another era." — Velda Brotherton
