Caleb Chilson was bitten as a teen by a bobcat and now when the moon changes he becomes the sleek cat. He is a private in the Confederate Army serving mostly on picket duty, watching for the Yankees to attack. Yet when there is a full moon, he manages to escape into the woods to make his transformation. During one of his transformations, he comes across another like him only this one is gunshot.
Brance is also a bobcat when the moon changes, now wounded and alone. He has his guard up when Caleb finds him. Although wary, he lets Caleb remove the bullet and clean the wound. The connection he feels with Caleb surprises him, especially when Caleb appears to feel the same connection. What will happen when they return to being men and Caleb learns that Brance is a Yankee?
Caleb is fascinated by the creature that is like him. He wants to explore the feelings he has and believes Brance returns. Brance is more aloof and very wary of becoming emotionally involved. After they spend one night together, there is a betrayal, one camp is attacked, and one man is held prisoner. Is their relationship over before it has started? Can right be made from wrong? Can forgiveness abound?
This is an interesting story of people being different and then finding someone that is just like them. The reader jumps right in heart first. Caleb and Brance make a great couple; they are so different yet so alike in many ways. Under a Confederate Moon is a quick, entertaining story by a talented author. Add this one to your reading collection. You will not be sorry you did.
