Seasons of Liberty

Seasons of Liberty begins in 1956 on the day before Billy Cureton's birthday and covers the roller coaster ride of his life over the next ten years. Billy is the son of George and Rosie, people of modest means, who at one time were affluent and at the top of society in South Georgia. Unfortunate events in their early lives, however, left them practically penniless and Billy was born to them at a time when they felt they would never have any children.

Billy initially accepts his situation in life and never questions why, when others have plenty, he has to wear homemade clothing and live in an old trailer. Neither does he question why he experiences health problems, when it seems that no one else has such issues. Ultimately, Billy realizes that change must come from him. He decides to overcome his circumstances and proceeds to break out of his timid, sickly existence.

Along the way, his family's fortunes improve, and Billy becomes a dashing, confident young man. He meets Mary Ann Carpenter and falls deeply in love with her. Circumstances beyond their control geographically separate the young lovers, but the love they share spans the distance between them. Billy, however, loses his way and struggles to find himself. He is both helped and hindered by many others, who play a significant role in his life. Will he ultimately get his life on track, or will he be doomed to see his dreams shattered and live a mediocre existence?

This fictional story is set in the real cities of Savannah and Hinesville, Georgia. Included are many other actual locales, some of which no longer exist. History is intertwined throughout and the reader might recognize some of the events that occur as the story unfolds.
