Itís 1862 and the Civil War has swept over the Cumberland Mountains into the heart of Tennessee. Jesse Dodson and his wife, Alice, want only to farm the land and raise their children in peace. But instead the cataclysmic forces of war have torn their family apart.
Their sixteen-year-old son William runs away to join the Union army, against his fatherís wishes. When Jesse decides to leave the farm and travel across battle lines to find the boy, he is conscripted to fight a war he doesnít believe in. Caught up in some of the bloodiest battles of the entire Civil War, he marches and fights in the Tennessee campaigns, praying that God will help him find his son and bring them home safely to the Cumberland Mountains.
An epic tale of one manís journey through the horrors of war and of a familyís courage and hope for healing, Winds of the Cumberland is a dramatic saga of heartache, sacrifice, faith, and lasting love.
