Now they had to decide if they were going to continue going west or if they were going to go back east. Either direction they thought about could cause hardship or death. West was a hard life with no help except from each other. Back east could mean death by hanging for both of them. After escaping from the Confederate prison, Trevor Lane is befriended by Margret Wright and her two children who find him in their woods more dead than alive and save his life. Once regaining his strength, Trevor leaves but promises to return at the end of the war to help her. When word comes that the war is over, Trevor travels back to the Wrights, only to find that their house has been destroyed and Margret and her son with it. He then decides he must move west, carrying the weight of the loss with him as he goes. In Trevor Lane and Independence, follow Trevor as he tries to make his way west through the South, being a former Union soldier in the Civil War, while also encountering the very people that took the Wrights and his future away from him.
