A Coat for a Soldier is based on George Washington's plea that women of America make coats for his soldiers. Camille Hutchinson, a music teacher in Philadelphia, made a coat and donated it through her church. After two years the coat has come back to her with an unconscious soldier in it. The nightmares that almost took her sanity ten years ago have also come back. As Camille is forced to accept that the soul of the wounded soldier is that of the man torn from her arms in a prior life, she is also forced to reconstruct her belief system.
