In this historical novel, the Ku Klux Klan thought the town of Donegal, Indiana, would be the perfect place to organize a new chapter. They intended to run out the blacks, Jews, Irish, Catholics, and immigrants so they could gain economic control of the area. What the Klan did not count on was the determination of an Irish Catholic baker who was determined to save his town. Historical facts are skillfully woven into this absorbing story of conflict that pits former good friends, neighbors, and customers against one another while struggling with a declining business environment, family issues, and religious tenets. When the author found proof that his family legend was true, he created the fictional town of Donegal to illustrate the conflict that America went through during the early part of the last century. His research uncovered evidence of Klan actions described in this story, though they may not have occurred specifically in Indiana.

Safe houses, trustworthy individuals, pathways, abandoned shelters, and unattended skiffs--these were crucial pieces of information that were spread, through word or song, from plantation to plantation, by way of the "grapevine." Throughout the Borderlands, this communication would help the slave to find freedom, by way of the Underground Railroad. The conductors and abolitionists on both sides of the Ohio River--consisting of slaves, free men of color, white and black residents, religious men, and other sympathetic citizens--were likely to suffer bodily inflictions, imprisionment, and monetary loss for aiding these fugitives in their flight from slavery and quest for freedom. Caroline Miller skillfully relates their stories through interviews, newspaper accounts, court cases, government records, and other published and unpublished accounts, so that these times, and these people are not forgotten.
