About this title: The story is about a land and its people and a river that winds through their hearts. It is about a Civil War that changes their lives forever. It is also a love story about a white planter and a woman of mixed blood lines, and a son who should not lay claim to his ancestry. It is a recollection of another time - when cotton was king, and the Sipsey River ran deep and wide toward Mobile Bay. It is said that if one listens closely, the call of the Raven Mocker still echoes in the depths of the swamp.
