Eight women are gathered n the parlor of Joys Place, awaiting the gentlemen who come to buy their favors. But tonight will be different. Instead of carriages, the reverberating thunder of battle intrudes. Instead of pleasure-seeking gentlemen, weary and frightened soldiers. The Civil War has come to Joys Place.For the magnificent Miss Joy, it turns her house of pleasure into a haven of mercy. For her beautiful, frivolous ladies, it brings a sense of commitment they had never before experienced. For Dr. Myer, hard-drinking physician-in-name-only, a moment of truth as to whether he can manage a scalpel in hands steady enough to save lives. And for Miss Joys lovely, young daughter, Steve, an exhilarating first glow of love.
