Banished, Thu 5 Mar


Elizabeth Quinn wakes screaming from a nightmare in her beloved Tommy Barrett's bunk. She needs to get out of the men's dorm fast, but Private Buckley, the most loathed soldier catches her.

As she's pulled before her social superiors, she refuses to name the man she loves, knowing Tommy would be hanged, so she suffers 25 lashes instead. But will Tommy let it happen?
