Black Iron Mercy by Eric Schlehlein
18 years after the Battle of Gettysburg, Arlis Jenkins has found some contentment in owning a livery in a small Wisconsin town. Told in a series of flashbacks, Black Iron Mercy is a poignant tale of love and faith, war and discord; a family shattered by loss and sorrow, and a man who struggles every day to hold onto hope.
