How do we go home?
Travel with Jason Emerson through the 1860s West in his efforts to heal his soul so he can go home. Trained as a sniper and assassin for the War Between the States, Jason travels west as a security guard for a cross-country freight company encountering Native Americans and outlaws.
His wife, Carey, is always mindful of Jason’s promise to come home as she suffers through her own soul-altering ordeals. At home in the mountains of West Virginia, she toils to keep the home fires burning. She learns to survive alone and takes on the challenge of operating the mountain farm that was their childhood dream.
The child, Catherine Sawyer, becomes the source of their connection and ultimately brings Jason home.
In the vein of Charles Frazier’s Cold Mountain, M. L. Gallagher’s Home will leave the reader inspired to learn more about the plight of some returning soldiers and their families left at home.
