Sub-title: The Double Life of Southern Belle Spy Elizabeth Van Lew. A Civil War novel based on a true story.

As the Civil War slogged on, an underground Unionist movement flourished in the heart of the Confederacy. An unlikely leader skillfully directed this clandestine group and became General Ulysses S. Grant’s spy in Richmond. Surrounded by a cadre of “slaves,” secretly freed, and a determined group of Union supporters, Elizabeth Van Lew, a wealthy and well connected member of Richmond’s elite, risked everything to help save the Union.

Based on an incredible true story, MISS LIZZIE’S WAR, recounts the intrigue involved in Elizabeth's double life, including her scheme to plant a spy in the home of Jefferson Davis, her secret romance with a Union prisoner, terrifying flights to freedom engineered by Elizabeth and her network for slaves and escaped Union prisoners - all during ongoing Confederate surveillance, investigations and arrests of Unionists
