About the Book

The year is 1962. A young man, Reuben, has just been released after four years in prison. He wants to come home to his family in upper South Carolina; but his stern father refuses. By a twist of fate, Reuben is reluctantly allowed to stay one night on a cot in the spare bedroom of the big farmhouse. Days turn to weeks, and the family begins to heal. But treacherous,violent people locate Reuben. They demand money and threaten his family if he doesn’t assist them in a bank robbery. Sick at heart, Reuben disappears---but not for long. In a harrowing and suspenseful Part IV of the book, he finds himself caught up in the heist, his little sister snatched as a hostage. Can he get free? And can he save his sister?
