When he soon finds himself the owner of a young slave boy, a chain of events is set in motion that will lead to two murders and the family''s strange relationship with a runaway slave named Bett.      Lyrical and as hard-edged as the realities of pioneer life, Spalding''s writing is nothing short of stunning. Her characters and their stories are unforgettable. Atmospheric and gripping, powerful and morally complex, the novel is timeless.
