The Civil War tore at the very roots of our nation and destroyed most of a generation.
In rural Arkansas, the Hancocks were devastated by that war. They not only lost everything, but experienced an unimaginable hell.
How does a traumatized human being put themselves back together? Where does a person begin to heal his or her broken mind...and does one choose damnation or redemption? For the Hancock siblings: Doc, Sarah, Butler, and Billy, the American frontier becomes a metaphor for the wilderness within—raw, and capable of being shaped. Self-salvation, however, always comes with a price.
Their journey is a testament to the power of love...and the American spirit.
This is their story. And ours.

Then, tragedy brings Mahala and Carolyn to Savannah just as Sherman advances on the city -- and forces everyone to confront their true feel-ings. Will Jack abandon his ship and its profits to the Yankees in Wil-mington Harbor in order to guide them on a perilous wagon journey across Georgia, or will he abandon the woman he claims to love, but whom he now knows also has feelings for another? And even if Mahala reaches safety, could her discovery about her father's long-ago murder and missing gold prove far more dangerous than the war?
