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.
