The wealthy, powerful Nikkos Thanos owns a woolen mill and almost everything else on the north side of Delphi, Missouri, and is the overseer of a fractured society. The brave, judicious Thaddeus Cousin Taylor owns a grocery store and a tavern on the south side and carries a past hauntingly shrouded in tragedy. Each man tries to shepherd his part of town through the turmoil of racism, the depression, and war. With the passage of time, those caretaker roles are filled by Evangelina, Nikkos beautiful and strong-willed daughter, and T.J., the grandson who worshipped Cousin. Forty-five years after high school, two friends, Ab and Grady, return for the funeral of their mentor, T.J., and walk into the middle of a mystery. They unweave the black and white threads that are the towns concealed, troubled past, revealing an extraordinary tapestry of life and death, revenge and triumph.This story is more than white and black differences. Its about what it means to be a man, to earn and give respect, to stand tall against adversity, to be a role model.LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO WALK WITH STRENGTH
