About the Edition

This is a fantasy that begins in the North Carolina mountains during 1941: a charismatic young stranger suddenly appears and villagers soon become convinced that he is, indeed, the Messiah--returning to Earth to clean up the crime-ridden village of Vesaria. But then he marries the town freak--a transgender wowman, Diana DuPree--and they have twin sons. Quickly, the Ku Klux Klan massacres the family--but both the father and his twins sons vanish before a plague wipes out the community. The book follows the evolution of the two brothers and their search for their mystical father--who may or may not have been Jesus Christ.
