Book one Appalachian Preserve introduced a cast of characters populating the Appalachian Mountains. A serious of catastrophic events, some natural but mostly brought about by man, led to the splintering of the once great United State of America. The American Spirit lives on in the hearts of these simple mountain people. They learned to be strong, united in a common purpose and to love and appreciate the creation God had given them. One mountain boy, Caleb, in search of a wife, found much more. Thrust into a role he never would have imagined, he led the Preservists, as they were called, in a mission that would change the history of the region. He had rescued a young woman, Eva Henderson, from certain servitude in the sex trade. She taught him not only to value his freedom, but to know what love was. Returning to the first woman her loved, Caleb did not abandon the woman who would be known not only in the region but far and wide as the 'Black Widow.'This is her story.
