    Thomas Hardy was born in 1840 near Dorchester in that part of England he called Wessex. With stories sometimes from his own imagination and sometimes from local tradition, Hardy's work, like Dickens and Trollope, creates a strong sense of mood and location. Hardy hoped to be remembered for his poetry, but ours is not a poetic age. Thus his claim to a new generation of readers rests on his prose. There are great similarities between his era, a time of challenge, and our own.

    Up until recently, Freeman has been known primarily as a "feminist" writer, for her classic stories like "A New England Nun", and "The Revolt of Mother". However, she also wrote many well crafted supernatural stories which have only recently begun to attract appreciative critical attention. These stories combine pragmatism and supernaturalism and are very much in the tradition of an "Americanized" Gothic.

Young wheat farmer Kurt Dorn is at odds with his father over his plan to leave the farm and enlist in the army to fight in World War One. Wheat crops are needed to feed the troops and the nation. When unscrupulous union organizers with foreign ties appear on the scene, a battle just as dramatic forces Kurt to take action that leads to life-changing decisions.
