Growing up poor in Depression-
era South Georgia is hard
enough, but Roger "Bud" MacLeod
has it tougher than most. All he
wants is a calm, quiet childhood.
Instead, he and his siblings are
caught between warring parents
whose secrets threaten to tear the
family apart. He'll have to grow up
fast, just to endure. Before Bud can
discover his strengths and confront
the sins of his parents, though, he'll
need to grasp his own truth: that he
can't embrace his future until he
comes to terms with his past.
Hardscrabble Road takes you along
on Bud MacLeod's journey of
betrayal and love, murder and
sacrifice, and his struggle for
survival of body and soul.
