But on the cold night of February 27, 1848, he aims to be free, if only for a little while. Somehow he manages to escape the clinches of the Alabama Sanders Plantation, but being free after living the life of a slave poses one distinct disadvantage-he has no idea what to do next.Life as a runner requires him to adapt quickly or die. The war between good and evil becomes real to him as he sees firsthand the way hate manifests itself in some, while good appears in others. The southern white men he has hated in his young life are soon facing him in the Civil War. Jones must learn to accept help from others to survive in a world turned upside down by the war. Dr. Daniel Black is one of those he must learn to trust. A medical doctor in the Confederate Army, Black understands his life before the war had been one of luxury and pride- after losing everything in the Civil War, hes determined to make his life count for God and help bring order back to the South.Cross-Pull reveals the struggle all men and women face throughout life. It shows that choices, whether made carelessly or thoughtfully, can have long-term consequences and change the direction and outcomes of ones life for eternity.
