Motivated by a life-changing loss, Seth Davenport has traveled across the country for seven years, fighting to liberate the common man from the grip of the moneyed few. His crusade has led him to Holden, Iowa, where for six months he has posed as a charismatic preacher, working alongside his wife, Amelia, to use the pulpit as a platform for his revolutionary political agenda.

Seth’s ability to inspire and lead has ignited an insurrection in Holden between the salt-of-the-earth farmers and the elites seeking to suppress them through price fixing and unjust foreclosures. Word of Seth’s uprising has begun to spread and now a Pinkerton strikebreaker named Creeley Turner has been sent to stop Seth and end the farmer’s revolt.

But unbeknownst to those around them, Seth and Creeley are estranged brothers whose brutal pasts have left their bond in tatters. With the devil now at his doorstep, Seth must find a way to fuel the farmer’s fight while preventing the truth of his Wyoming days from undermining their cause. The time for revolution is now, but only if Seth can stop the past from repeating itself.
