Description
After years abroad, Jasper Wainwright returns to Beaufort, South Carolina, home of his unruly youth. As cries for secession grow louder, Jasper works desperately to convince Beaufort planters that gradual emancipation and transition to a wage-based economy could avert the coming storm of war. Will Beaufort be another Pompeii, its civilization disappearing in a cataclysm it refuses to foresee?
