Yonder Where the Road Bends (Paperback)
Yonder Where the Road Bends follows the path of Virgil Hill, a 17 year-old fighter, as he comes to terms with loss and love in the aftermath of the War Between the States. The story moves from the streets of Tallahassee, to the battlefield at Natural Bridge, to a wilderness settlement along the Manatee River. There, in a house built on an ancient Indian mound, he meets the woman he will love. As an old man in a new and unwelcoming century, Virgil sums up his life and reflects on his unique relationship with two friends, who have stayed with him nearly 40 years, though gone from the world all that time.
