How Jason, a loyal Southerner, matures with Northern ideals occurs in the ambience of his parents' beliefs. More important, Jason discovers the meaning of hopeless love between two misfits - one black, one white - in the deep South just prior to the eruption of the Civil War.
Rather than a Southern moonlight-and-magnolias setting, this novel explores the lesser known gritty, industrial sabotage aspects in the North; Southern attempts to burn Northern cities and destroy Lincoln's war-making capabilities.
The Civil War tore at the hearts of all Americans. Baker's Dozenth will tear at your heart.
