This novel is about Judge Thomas Averill Carter who is wealthy, influential and the most eligible bachlor in Tioga County, New York in 1852. His authority is wide-ranging and his life is nearly perfect. Any thought of seroius romance is the farthest thing from his mind, until he is upended by the stunning beautiful Sa-ku-ma Gage, elldest of the Mowhawk family of touring gospel singers and story tellers. Casting Victorian conventions aside, they allow their intense desire and love to transcend racial and social barriers and engage in a torrid relationship. Conflict erupts as they become estranged from both family and community. While their passion will remind the reader of the legend of Pocahontas, an unexpected developement blends their story with the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. The author was born and raised in the northeast and lived in England for a number of years. He now makes his home on a wooded hillside along the Susquehanna River in upstate New York with his wife and the animals of the forest. This is his first published novel, though he has numerous articles and essays published on a wide range of non-fiction subjects
