Short Summary

The Lasserman boys grew up in mid-twentieth century America, but a severely divided nation driven by polarizing political demagogues, stressed their moral foundations to the breaking point and the country into a new and violent civil war.


Through cataclysmic changes that turned America into several smaller separate nations, the Lasserman boys learned that family is stronger than hate and that we are all stronger together as one nation.
