Johnny Crowe is an outsider who longs for the acceptance of the folks of the small town of Fiddler's Picket. In the spring of 1862, Johnny enlists in the Confederate Army with the hope of making something of himself and, in return, earning the respect that he yearns for.
Leaving his home on Devil's Knob as well as his beloved Anna Lee behind, Johnny travels to Richmond, Virginia, to enlist. Over the spring and summer, the war takes its toll on Johnny's mind, body, and soul. Aid comes in the form of the mysterious Mr. Scratch, who always has a solution for Johnny's predicament in his magical trunk, provided that Johnny is willing to pay the price.
Follow Johnny as he works his way up through the ranks of the Army in the process of finding his way back home to Fiddler's Picket. Will Anna Lee accept the man who comes home in place of the boy she once knew? What price is Johnny willing to pay to make it back to her? And what dark secret awaits him upon his return to Devil's Knob?

Crowe is my first published novel. Somewhere along the way, what started as a "what of" took on a life of its own and became the somewhat personal and altogether strange adventure of Johnny Crowe in the spring and summer of 1862.
Thank you for deciding to take a look at Crowe. It is my sincere hope that each of you has as much fun reading it as I had writing it. Who knows, you might even find a message hidden somewhere between the honorable men, scoundrels, and supernatural elements if you look hard enough!
