Chase Girard has been charged with the task of persuading the legendary Southern charmer to spy for the Union.Laura is deeply drawn to the Union cause, but she has two brothers in the Confederate Army.

Critic reviews

"Austell brilliantly depicts the cruel costs of the bitter North-South schism on both home front and battlefield....[While the Music Plays has] the narrative power and flow of Margaret Mitchell's [Gone with the Wind]." (Publishers Weekly)
"One is in good hands with reader Anna Fields. She sets this costume drama before the listener with ladylike enthusiasm, obviously having a good time." (AudioFile)
