Book III of the ongoing saga erupts against the backdrop of historical characters and places when the Arkansas Delta seethed with strife and violence during the Great Depression. Guns, terror, deception, and intrigue test Minnie and her mother Nora's determination to return to their ancestral roots. Scorned by men of all classes with the notion women cannot run a plantation, Minnie and Nora's grit and resolve are unyielding in the face of obstacles and the prevailing prejudice. Bound to the women's desire to save the land is a vow to settle the score against those who viciously attacked their family. Motivated by revenge to destroy those men responsible, more land is accumulated. More land brings more wealth, power, and influence with a reach to the state capitol. Fear is not an option for Minnie and Nora, even when other wealthy planters have created the Nightriders-thugs who terrorize the landless-and intimidate other planters who fail to resist the first white and black Union in the nation. Socialism takes hold. A perceived attempt by Communists to influence the Union increases the retaliation from planters toward the dispossessed and helpless. While the men worry about political philosophies, Minnie and Nora fashion an empire of cotton even greater than the plantation before it. Still, in the turmoil of the times, Minnie does not compromise her character and values.
