A young couple leaves Ohio for the promise of a new life on the Kansas plains. They settle a prime tract of farm land near Lawrence, Kansas. A second young couple slips the bonds of slavery in Missouri. Circumstance brings them together. Set against the backdrop of a nation divided over the issue of slavery, the young settlers fight to hold their land and realize the future that unites them.

Sycamore Promises is a sweeping personal saga told with attention to history so as to both entertain and inform.--Provided by Amazon.com.
