A desperate boy, in a desperate search … for peace.
A quiet town in Kentucky explodes from a racial incident and fourteen-year-old Tom Wallace is in the thick of it. His past haunts him and now he’s witness to a horrific event leaving him devastated and afraid.
Along with his cousin, Will, he searches for lost gold he believes can help him escape his town and memories. But leaving has consequences. He will lose his friends and his new love.
On a fiery staircase Tom finally realizes that he must face his inner demons and his horrific nightmares. To do so requires him to take a stand that could change his life … or end it.
Kentucky author, Ben Woodard, relies on personal experience and family history to tell this moving story of personal tragedy and racial hatred set in the rolling countryside of Kentucky in 1923.
