Jane McKeene, the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman, was born days before the dead began walking the battlefields of Gettysburg, right after the Civil War ends. She is studying to become an Attendant, as a chance for a better life for Negro girls like her. She will be trained in weaponry and etiquette in order to protect the well-to-do in the new America. After finishing training, she plans to return to her home in Kentucky, but is instead caught up in a conspiracy and a desperate fight for her life. The zombies prove to be the least of her problems, stacked up to the powerful enemies she is facing.
