The civil war is coming to an end but not without the sacrifices of the families left behind to deal with the Yankees. All Things New brings to life the struggles of those in the South particularly the Weatherly family during the Reconstruction of the South. Josephine Weatherly realizes that her privileged life growing up on their Virginia plantation will never return, while her mother Eugenia believes that all things will be restored to their previous grandeur and social status. Losing her father and brother to the war leaves Josephine with a broken faith in God and struggles with why things have happened to her family. One thing that she knows for sure is that she needs to learn to survive in this new way of life and realizes that Lizzie, their only servant, is the person who will teach her those skills. But can she make her mother understand and accept this new way of life? All Things New is an absorbing story of survival and forgiveness.
