It's 1939, and the world is at the precipice of war.  But life for one young man in rural America couldn't be better.  Jonathon Blackwell is the eldest son of the most powerful family in town and heir to Blackwell Iron and Mining.  Unlike many who struggled to survive the final years of the Great Depression, he has everything he could ever want - except the one thing he desires most.

Sheltered by class, privilege, and living inside a locked iron fence meant to protect him, no one could ever imagine anything terrible could happen to him, but dark times are coming.  Fate is about to play it's cruel hand, and when it's all over, the world, the country, and young Jonathon will be changed forever.

The much anticipated prequel to the 2014 Watty award winning and Wattpad featured story, The Boy in the Woods!   This is Jonathon's story, and it just may break your heart...

Best Ranking:
Historical Fiction #4

Note:  Even though this story takes place before  events in The Boy in the Woods, it's intended to be read AFTER because it wraps up the last of the mysteries of that story.   A gentle warning - many spoilers and much confusion lie ahead if you decide to start with this one.  :)

The boy in the Woods was an amazing read! I read it at night in bed, on the porch while it rained,and sometimes I made the family stay quiet during the day just to sneak in a few chapters!
