Book description…

Set in a small, racially segregated town in Alabama during the 1960’s, borne out of bigotry and hatred as the result of blatant ignorance. A story of the struggles and hardships endured by a white Southern family, brought about as the result of death threats directed toward the patriarch of the family from the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in the Deep South in the 60’s.
