At its core, Wolf's Run is a love story set against the violent backdrop of the 1960s Civil Rights Era in Mississippi. Holly Lee Carter is a young, beautiful photo-journalist left paralyzed and in a wheelchair while covering the Vietnam War. When Holly inherits her family newspaper, she reluctantly leaves her adopted home in Los Angeles and returns to the family home - Wolf's Run -- in DeLong, Mississippi. With segregated Cattahatchie County remaining as the last of its kind, even in Mississippi, Holly fights to keep the newspaper out of bankruptcy and the hands of the Ku Klux Klan, and comes to believe that her father's death was accident. Returning home a paraplegic, Holly must deal with her own fears, insecurities, frustrations and the reawakening of powerful, long-dormant desires. Her hard-earned Christian faith sustains her. But will it be eugh to save her? Along the way, a surprising friendship develops between Holly and Cutter Carlucci, an 18-year-old high school football star with a vicious Klansman father and a chip on his shoulder about cripples. Living on his own, with all his belongings stowed in his old Jeep, Cutter has a maturity and influence beyond his years - plus looks a movie star would envy. With the county school system under a desegregation order and a new all-white academy set to open, the best football player anybody in (DeLong) ever saw up close will have to make a decision that will shape t only his future but that of his sister and mother - and perhaps cost him his life. When the sheriff is murdered and churches and crosses are burned, the county is ready to explode; and when the Klan's most fearsome, deadly and unstoppable bomb-maker arrives in town, Holly's life is in constant danger. Before the summer of '69 is over, Holly and Cutter will risk everything - including their lives - to uncover the Carter family's secret, find the truth about her father's death and to reshape the future of Cattahatchie County.
