Bane of The Innocent
“There’s no reason for them to shoot us; we ain’t anyone” – Sammy, Bane of the Innocent.
Two young boys become unlikely companions during the fall of Atlanta. Sammy and Ben somehow find themselves, and each other, in the rapidly changing and chaotic environment of the war-torn Georgia City.
As the siege ends and the fall begins in late August and early September of 1864, the Confederate troops begin to move out and Union forces cautiously move into the city. Ben and Sammy simply struggle to survive, but in the process, they develop a friendship that will prove more important than either one could imagine.

Check out what amazing readers say about this book.
“The story is about 2 boys during the civil war times. one of the boys named Sammy had it rough, his mom was a drunk that didn’t work and at one time tried to give him away. Benjamin was the other young boy, they had a lot of fun together, just like the story of Mark Twain. Sammy had one other friend named Tommy that was a solder and died, thru all the ups and downs this story has a very happy ending. I really enjoyed this book and would like to find more books from this author. I think if you give this book a try, you will be glade you did.”
