                                             ——from THY BROTHER’S BLOOD

A divided nation is at war, neighbor fighting neighbor, brother killing brother. Two young men, one slave and one free, are lifelong friends and, unknown to them, half-brothers with a common father. The contrasting colors of their skins has put them on opposite sides of a bitter and bloody conflict. This is the epic story of these men, the women they love and of a people in turmoil over issues that divide a nation, then and now——an action-filled and emotion-packed tale of love, vengeance, and the search for justice that will bring a lump to your throat, joy to your heart and hope for a better day.

     “The voice of thy brother’s blood
       cries unto me from the ground.”
                                  ——Genesis 4:10

         Based on actual events. Thoroughly and painstakingly researched and true to 

       the conditions and character of the country as it was then
