How far will a man go to protect his own? Jacob Franklin Myles loves his family; so much so that the young deacon will travel to the ends of the earth to protect them. Fortunately, Chicago will be enough. Jacob Myles, rancher, farmer, and trainer of golden retrievers has lived happily in the small town of Hopskip, Georgia for most of his entire life. Raising a family of five with his childhood sweetheart, wife Dorothy Rosetta Myles, life in Hopskip is heaven on earth for young Deacon Myles. Circumstances beyond their control; unfortunately, have forced the Myles family to leave the only life they’ve ever known. Fearing for the lives and safety of their children, Jacob and Dorothy, aka Dottie migrate their family to the windy city. The family’s move, however, is not without conflict as certain family members are hesitant to leave the comparatively tranquil, country life in exchange for the unknown. Can activist and eldest son Jacob, Jr. survive without his precious Molly Beth, his forbidden lover from the other side of the tracks? Will Jacob’s daughter Josie forgive him for forbidding her marriage to smooth-talking Mack Hodges? Can the Deacon forgive himself for his own actions necessitating the hasty move north? Will their familial bond be broken adjusting to the challenges of life in the big city? With the burgeoning civil rights movement as a backdrop and many of his family at odds with his decision, Jacob Franklin Myles truly believes his decision is the right move for his family. He soon discovers, however, that his precious cargo has many, many miles to go.
