The events in this story encompass the civil war years and afterwards. This is not a war story, but the story of one young man’s bizarre involvement in that momentous era. It is also the story of how four different women influenced his life. One almost got him killed, another saved him from death. The third rescued him from despair, while the fourth brought him a kind of contentment.
