Gideon Swayne is a man of God. He's spent his life in a peaceful town in southern Illinois tendng a very quiet, happy congregation. With the war in the South ending, and the slaves freed, Gideon is called to a new mission. He goes south - the cotton fields of North Carolina - to take the word of God to the newly free.
What he didn't count on was the hatred of the citizens of Old Mill, North Carolina...the love of a swamp witch named Desdemona ... the friendship of a young boy...and a life that would challenge his faith and his sanity, show him darkness and magic such as he'd never witnessed, and lead him down the darkest paths through man's heart.

A powerfully written tale of still-smouldering post Civil War prejudices, and an unlikely love story between a wandering Preacher whose heart tells him to spread his mission, and a worker of the fields who has mysterious powers drawn from the Great Dismal Swamp. Set against this; the arrogant, merciless landowners who do as they please and hold the town's powers in their sway - the backdrop is set for a battle of freedoms and rights, of magic and love.
