THE REBEL’S WRATH is historical fiction and also a suspense/thriller.

Ready to make his way in the world, Union soldier Sherman Jackson receives a letter from his father, beseeching him to return to Maine and save the failing family business. Bound by familial responsibilities, yet unwilling to return to a life he despised, Sherman goes home to face many hard and oftentimes deadly decisions.

The Rebel’s Wrath is Christopher Morin’s third book and second novel.
