When the Mexican-American War ends in 1846, Virgil Moody returns to his life as a farmer in Texas, where he lives with Annie, a black woman, and her son Lucas.

His quest takes him to Indiana, where he meets Tamsey, a freed slave, and together they are soon caught in the shadowland between the South and the North, between the United States and Canada, and between Black and White.
