About the release of The Second Epoch.
Ever wonder what possible events led to what historians now call a 'century of war', the period between 1880 and 1911? A generation grew up with a period of economic and social growth and change, a sense of hope that was positive and enlightened.
That suddenly changed. A world war was fought, then another, then smaller wars that spread to every continent on the face of the earth. What if something happened, something that was supposed to bring one thing instead brought something else? What if a utopia had happened, a sense of peace and cooperation had broken out, only to fall into chaos and disarray instead?
Second Epoch is the final act for one and a rescue for another. The life we understand today might have been different, and one man is on a mission to find out what happened and to touch what he'd been taught by his own father but failed to pass on to his own son.
Phillip Bryant is a master of historical fiction set in rural America.

Orphaned as an infant and deformed by an accident of birth, she has spent her years being taken care of by people who love her no more than she does them.

There are dark secrets kept in the whispers of the people of Happy Valley and Bumpersville, WV, and she is part of those secrets.
A soul-searching man ready to experience his last great adventure and an ill-tempered orphan seeking the past stumble onto a farming community's hidden evil and need each other's help to escape it.
