The stormy era that followed our Civil War was a time of great hope and great expansion- also it was a time when men tried desperately to find themselves in a strange new world where progress went hand in hand with ruthlessness and greed. ThisMoreThe stormy era that followed our Civil War was a time of great hope and great expansion- also it was a time when men tried desperately to find themselves in a strange new world where progress went hand in hand with ruthlessness and greed.

This dramatic novel tells the story of one mans search for his destiny in those turbulent days.In the troubled spring of 1865, Sam Bellnap, haggard and exhausted from many months in Andersonville, most dreaded of Confederate prisons, returned to his home in Highland Landing, N.Y. He looked forward to resuming a way of life that had been a sustaining memory for four long years of war. But Sam did not know that the War Department had declared him dead over a year ago, and that Martha, the girl he loved, had taken the name Bellnap-Mrs.

Robert Bellnap-as the wife of Sams elder brother.You were dead, darling. Martha explained. Should I have died too?It was not so easy to explain Robert, who seemed to represent all the changes that plague those who come back from the dead. Because of Robert, the mid-Hudson valley had altered more in four years of strife than in all the twenty-years of Rip Van Winkles slumber.

The old, quiet stability, so loved by Sam, had given way to a ruthless roughshod industrialism- Highland Landing was fast losing its identity in the jostle of stranger who worked in the Bellnap factories that lined the river front.After a war of American against American Sam faced an equally grim and far more personal struggle of brother against brother. He could not turn back the clock. He could only stand by the values in which he believed, and fight the evil force that threatened him and his beloved town.
