About the Author
Gerald W. Shaw is a retired trial attorney licensed in Ohio and Kentucky. He lives on a small farm in Ewing, Kentucky. He holds an A.B. degree from the University of Kentucky, with a major in political science and a minor in history. He also holds a J.D. degree from Cleveland State University.

Henry O’Day, a lawyer-planter widower with a teenaged daughter, owns a small plantation on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee in 1860. He secretly is a part of the Underground Railroad, sending runaway slaves north. While he is on a journey to Jackson, Mississippi to rescue a slave woman (the wife of one of the Negroes on his plantation) who has been taken from Crossville, Tennessee to be sold, Republican radicals in Congress are planning to pass punitive legislation which will ensure that plantation owners who continued to keep slaves after President Lincoln announced the Emancipation Proclamation will have their lands confiscated and given to their former slaves. In addition, the owners will be sentenced to a period of servitude on the land under the control of their former slaves. Henry’s life becomes more complicated after he meets a middle-aged woman who stops over in Crossville, with her aged parents, on their way from Vicksburg, Mississippi to Oberlin, Ohio, where she is an instructor and assistant to the President of Oberlin College. After Karen Melaney is accused of being a Union spy, Henry convinces the trio to stay at his farmstead until the matter is resolved. The characters experience many adventures and travels throughout the war-torn south, and other parts of the country, via horseback, mule, stagecoach and steamboat. Henry’s trial before a military court set up by the U.S. Department of War for owning slaves, and the impeachment, conviction and removal from office of President Andrew Johnson culminate in Henry’s representation before the United States Supreme Court of slave owners who have been tried and convicted under the Slaveowners Redemption Act. A ferocious battle among counsel and members of the court takes place as Henry attempts to persuade the tribunal that the Constitution of the United States is not the organic law of the land but is superseded by cosmosean law.
Genesis T. Yengoh is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press, and he wants your help deciding his book cover.
Nsiemboh Ngoske is the most successful member of his family. Intelligent, educated, and poised on the brink of a career promotion, he has blessed his parents and siblings with wealth and comfort formerly beyond their reach. His parents, Elias and Lydia Ngoske, want to do all they can to protect and support their son. Lydia Ngoske believes in the Christian God—that wonderful heavenly Father who has so much to give, and who asks only prayer and belief of His followers. She prays fervently for protection and favor from God, but she knows that won’t be enough in a world where personal agendas are advanced through the powers of the occult. She demands that her son be protected by traditional medicine, and enlists Elias Ngoske’s brother, Nsanen Jude, to find the most powerful protection available. He recommends Mforme Tata, a renowned traditionalist sought after by the most influential men in the country. He agrees to give the Ngoske family what they want…but inexorable rules govern the world of the occult, and the Ngoskes find that they are given something unexpected, which neither the dark arts nor the Christian God can control. In a compelling, richly atmospheric, beautifully characterized exploration of how belief shapes destiny, God and the Gods draws you into a world of intricate ritual and family love, where one person’s mistake may have irreversible consequences.
