In the summer of 1864, sixteen-year-old Rhoda Strong lives in the Lumbee Indian settlement of Robeson County, North Carolina. The community is besieged by the marauding Union Army and hectored by the desperate Home Guard, hell-bent on conscripting the young Indians into deadly forced labor in the forts and salt works of the Confederacy. The daughter of a Scotsman and his formidable Lumbee wife, Rhoda is fiercely loyal to her family and desperately fears for their safety, but is divided by her love for outlaw hero Henry Berry Lowrie, a man whose moral fiber dictates his every move. In this fictional memoir from the author of Dreams of Sleep and Rich in Love ''the hunger and anarchy at war's end are vividly portrayed. So is the way that local animosities feed into and play off regional hostilities.''óNYTBR
