I Pray the Lord My Soul to Keep: A Tale of the Civil War
Who was Jerry Manning? The son of a mad woman? The off spring of wandering vagrants? Or the supposedly murdered son of a wealthy planter and military leader? Would he somehow find the answer upon the battlefields of the War Between the States? And what price would he be willing to pay to learn the secret of his identity? A novel of divided loyalties, dangerous love, violent hatred and a disintegrating society, based upon John Ford’s Jacobean play Perkin Warbeck.
