In a frightening incident, Elsie’s husband, Edward Travilla, narrowly survives an accidental shooting when friends tease son Edward, Jr., into firing a loaded pistol. The shot grazes Edward’s head, and he survives with only minor damage. Soon life in the Travilla household returns to its calm routine. In the meantime, Elsie welcomes a cousin from Scotland who brings a very special talent with him as well as news of her mother’s ancestral family.

Elsie and Edward take great delight in their burgeoning family. The aftermath of the Civil War provides them with many opportunities to uphold their heritage and faith in practical ways, but they are caught up in a campaign against a powerful adversary—the Ku Klux Klan—as they fight to protect the innocent from unjust persecution.

    " I really like this series although it's a bit Calvinistic in its theology, and it's a bit uber-Christian; i.e., the Christians are really, really good and the non-Christians are really, really bad. "
