SHOD WITH FLAME

Continuing from the light, to the lighter historical vein of Dark Saibs, but still managing a rather romantic touch, this is a story of the Civil War, of the bordering states Kentucky and Tennessee who were to divide their sympathies and allegiance. In particular it concerns Barclay Heath who, when her home is burned, goes to enemy country in Tennessee to see her stepbrother's grave, is taken to the house of aristocratic Caroline Donelson where she meets Carr Peyton, Confederate, whom she loves in spite of her Union loyalties. How Carr escapes, how Caroline's home is requisitioned by the Union army and Barclay is accused of the Union soldier's death which made possible Carr's escape, all this leads to the close of the war and happiness for Carr and Barclay. A sheen of gallantry and glamour makes this a pleasant, if not important, popularization of past performances.
