Lee invades Maryland with the hope of obtaining diplomatic recognition of European nations for the Confederacy.

The whirlwind of events that follows changes not only the destiny of the nation, but the destinies of two young people on a pilgrimage of self-discovery. Fifteen-year-old Meg Hamilton, orphaned after the deaths of her mother and grandfather is desperately unhappy living with an aunt and uncle who despise her.

Megs biological father, whom she has met only once, is a Virginian with Lees invading army. Megs miserable home life and complications involving the family of her oldest and dearest friend Daniel motivate her to search for her father, even though he may not acknowledge her existence. When Daniel discovers her plan, he is determined to help her--despite a deep revulsion he feels towards the enemy.

Daniel and Meg learn that her father is with a regiment led by Stonewall Jackson, and they begin a journey together to find his military unit. Their travels lead them not only to the father she never knew, but also to a relationship that becomes much more than a childhood friendship. The Turning Point will transport you back to a place and time when momentous historical events reshaped the future of a nation and the lives of those who were caught up in them.
