Tara's Forgotten Son
Wade Hampton Hamilton is the unsung hero in a classic American novel. A child conceived at the onset of civil distress, he struggles to overcome the trauma of soldiers, abandonment, and near starvation. When his mother disposes of him at Tara, he finds solitude in the land, but he is soon thrust into manhood when he protects his friend from her abusive father. As he follows her across the country to save her from mistreatment, he battles the forces of nature in the Wild West, the wiles of a scorned woman, and his intense desire to maintain his integrity. Bearing the scars of loss and lies, he discovers his ability to break free from the hold of his tormented past, his manipulative mother, and the forces of iniquity that work against him. Still, he searches for peace, forgiveness, and the strength to survive.
