A waiting legacy
When Little John's papa dies on his tenth birthday in December, 1868, and his grandma a few days later, the boy is haunted by the question: Why does he lose everyone he loves? As he grows into his teen years, he is torn between his admiration for the mysterious Mitch Callaway, who disappeared weeks at a time, and loyalty to Uncle Russell, who left the family farm to work in the city. Will Little John ever find a father figure? Will he find the secret paper that his mama Lucy and Uncle hide from him? And why is his eighteenth birthday so significant?
