Synopsis: The final installment of Catherine Banner's sweeping Last Descendants trilogy.
     Harlan's family left the capital city when he was just eight days old, fleeing the outbreak of war, taking with them only what they could carry in their pockets. Since that dangerous and frightening journey in the dead of winter, they have lived on Holy Island, where Maria hoped her children could find peace. But peace of mind has always eluded Harlan, and now that the island is threatened he must come to terms with his own place in history. Forced to make a perilous journey back to the ruins of the homeland he never properly knew, can Harlan bring his family back together?
    The third volume in the Last Descendants trilogy, The Heart at War is a love story, an epic novel, and an exploration of what happens to the individual human heart under the pressures that threaten to divide it.
