THE OUTCOME WILL KEEP YOU THINKING LONG AFTER THE FINAL WORDS HAVE BEEN READ!

The outcome will keep you thinking about their stories long after the final words has been read! This engrossing novel immerses the reader in the reality of post-Civil War America, following the intertwining stories of a freed slave, a high-minded West Point cadet, and a strong-willed young woman struggling to live their lives in an era of brutality and greed. We experience the terror of newly freed slaves pursued by angry white men filled with hatred. We see the power wielded by wealthy men intent on controlling everyone around them and witness the mindless slaughter of indigenous people as mercenaries and military seek to incite Indian uprisings to justify taking their land. At the same time, we know what a band of renegade Indians has done to white settlers and how their leader treats a female captive. There's the good, the bad, and everything in between as we travel with these multi-sided characters on their quests for freedom from personal oppression. The result is a book full of believable people who take you along on a journey with no guarantees that things will go well. As in real life, predictability is not an aspect here, and the outcome will keep you thinking about their stories long after the final words has been read.
