Summary, etc.:
"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."-- from publisher.
