"The half-breed Lord, that’s what early eighteenth century genteel society calls him as they whisper behind his back. They call him other things as well, like abomination, monster, demon spawn; for Rafe is a child born of rape, and because of his half Delaware Indian blood, considered cursed, soulless, little more than an animal.
A man of God, who would never intentionally harm either man or beast, Rafe openly resents these vile and untrue labels, but then one day he accidentally kills one of his few close friends, and begins to believe what everyone says about him. The quick downward spiral into iniquity which follows only further proves to Rafe that he’s irredeemable and rejected by God.
This is the story of Rafe’s spiritual and physical journey toward the ultimate truth; a journey wrought with danger, rejection, unrewarded sacrifice; and in the end, unconditional love."
