THE HIDDEN LIGHT OF NORTHERN FIRES is a fictionalized account of the only secesssionist town north of the Mason Dixon Line. The story is fact based, historically correct, and concerns the author's actual family. The abolitionist and the fugitive follow a dangerous path and combine to make a page-turning read.
