Call Each River Jordan: A Novel of Historical Suspense by Owen Parry

The Civil War collapses from illusions of chivalry into bitter reality overnight. A Welsh immigrant to the Union and a veteran of Britains distant wars, Major Abel Jones survives the battles slaughter only to face the riddle of a different kind of massacre.Far from the cries and smoke of combat, forty murdered slaves hang at a crossroads. There is little concern for the lost lives, but political dangers worry the leadership on both sides. The blood may be upon Northern as well as Southern hands. In a country shocked by casualty lists and unready for emancipation, only one man, a plain-speaking officer with a limp and a troubled conscience, insists on justice.Ritual murders spur merciless cavalry raids.

Desperate men and women make a heartbreaking attempt to build a city on a hill in the Mississippi backwoods. And a chain of death proves as relentless as war itself.Call Each RiverJordan re-creates the torment of a divided nation -- of shattered families and broken dreams -- yet the power of the human heart to hope underlies even the darkest moments of danger.

Whether describing the miseries and joys of a common soldiers life or recounting a slaves lifelong
