"Don't die till we get to have some fun, girl." Samuel's whiskey-ruined voice was hot in Charlotte's ear. Somewhere behind her, Dean's maniacal laughter pulsated with cruelty. The Bowie knife grew closer to her face, but with her arms lashed behind her, Charlotte could only watch in helpless terror as the promise of death drew nearer.The war is over, Sanderson is home, and life is good ... until the Army comes knocking.
They have charged Sanderson with murder and he is sentenced to "hang by the neck until dead" - unless he can track down and bring to justice the notorious outlaw William Quantrill.
Left in Minerva's capable hands, Charlotte endures a hard pregnancy and battles a rash of hydrophobia that threatens Cotton, Achilles, and the entire Arkansas countryside - her Sanderson included.
