ISBN: 9780982880661. OCLC Number: 789673466 . . Inspired by dreams of building a utopian society, James Turner, a charming writer and lecturer, Charlotte, his down-to-earth bride, and Cabot, an idealistic Harvard-educated abolitionist are drawn together in a social experiment deep in the Missouri Ozarks. With Civil War looming, they are confronted with the hardships of building and sustaining a new community while staying neutral in an increasingly divided country.
