South Carolina history and human drama combine in From the Far Places, the new novel by Dorothy K. Morris.

From the wilds of the Occaneechi Warriors' Path in the Carolina Piedmont, a lonely Monastery in far Northumbria, and a mansion in The Strand of London, a middle-aged man seeks his lost youth, a boy and girl help him find it, and a beautiful red stallion brings them all together. The combination of characters form a melting pot of cultures, class, languages, religions and personalities. In the historic South Carolina explored in this riveting novel, some of these differences blended while others created problems that could never be overcome.
