Set in what was then part of Spartanburg County in South Carolina, Thicketty follows the lives of Walt Banneck and his son, Cal, through three of the most tumultuous decades of the nineteenth century. During this time, a war is fought and lost. While navigating through a world turned upside-down, the path before them is one that pits them against both the law and the lawless.
Walt, who had been shunned by his pious neighbors before the war, returns home to become not only a successful farmer and entrepreneur, but the area's champion as well. Meanwhile, Cal, who idolizes his seldom-at-home father and receives little kindness from his mother, is drawn into the bosom of the farm's Negro family. For everyone on the Banneck farm, especially Cal, day-to-day life is monotonous and dull. That changes when Walt decides that his children should receive at least a rudimentary education and arranges for the young and beautiful Sammie Trivette to be their tutor. Cal is immediately and totally smitten, but decides to keep his love a secret until he has something more to offer her. That day finally comes, and with it a series of events that would test the mettle of the strongest men.
Theirs is a story of love and hate, of protectiveness and treachery, of compassion and vindictiveness, but above all, it is one of youthful determination and the undying hope that tomorrow will be a better day.
