From the Publisher:

Advance Praise for Blind Obedience:

"Blind Obedience is a tragic but true story of a feud between two families, reminding the reader of the infamous Hatfields and McCoys. Boyd's narrative vividly tells this story of love, hate, murder, and lynching."—Margaret Anne Barnes, author of A Buzzard is my Best Friend, The Tragedy and Triumph of Phenix City, Alabama, and Murder in Coweta County.

"Bill Boyd's book Blind Obedience is a dark, disturbing tale of murder and misplaced loyalty. He makes turn-of-the-century rural Georgia a very real place peopled with fascinating characters. It is fast moving—I read it in two sittings—and the characters stayed with me for days after I finished the book."—Jaclyn White, author of Whisper to the Black Candle
