Honey Creek Farewell is a Civil War novel that tells a powerful story of duty, honor, valor, and love, as Newton McEver, the main character, seeks to balance his familyas desire for neutrality in war-torn Missouri with the pressures of war to choose sides. The story begins on a cold January morning in 1862 when partisan raiders attack the isolated McEver home in southwestern Missouri. Afterwards, the remnants of a shattered family find temporary refuge with their Cherokee cousins a short distance away in the Indian Nations. This is a fast-paced book that moves smoothly from Missouri to Indian Territory and onto the battlefields of Arkansas and Louisiana as Newton fights to survive combat and his own doubts about war. The reader will taste the horrors of battle, but also be moved by this story of family, friendship, courage, and love, told with humor and sensitivity.
