After suffering physical and emotional wounds in the Korean War, Private Nick Parilli is discharged from the U.S. Army and returns to his father's Chicago home. Disillusioned by the war, big-city political corruption, and injustice, he becomes disgusted with the hectic and callous nature of metropolitan life. Ultimately, the tragic death of his father is the catalyst that drives him to abandon urban life in the North.
In search of an uncorrupt, compassionate and slower-paced lifestyle, he strikes out for the South. After rekindling a relationship with his former college roommate, Stan Mullins, he elects to make a small Southern town his permanent home--a decision that forever changes his life. While he finds the fulfillment of love and friendship, he becomes embroiled in a world of unforeseen circumstances.
Southern Sanctuary is a story of dramatic constrasts--serenity, romance, intrigue, violence, and betrayal in which the author paints a vivid picture of small-town Southern life in the early fifties.
