Samenvatting

An apocryphal story set in the Civil War South … the story of a man whose blindness enables him to see.In the nineteenth century as America struggles with its morality, southern educators journey to South Carolina to test Dixie’s physical fitness in games of strength that pit white students against black slaves. Lasting friendships emerge, friendships that endure the pain and suffering of plantation life before, during and after the Civil War, and friendships that rise in the face of racism in an age when hatred is as common as love. An unlikely bond is forged between the young black champion Tobit and the half-breed highwayman – the self-proclaimed Hoodoo Man – who Tobit encounters as he returns to Nineveh, his master’s plantation in ante-bellum Georgia. Accused of abetting a runaway slave, Tobit is blinded and left a broken man by the sadistic overseer Wolfenbüttel.Twenty years later at the end of the war, Tobit sends his only son Tobias on a quest through the ravaged Southland to find the Hoodoo Man who may be the only one who can save Tobit and the people of Nineveh from the hate and greed of a nation in the throes of rebirth. Accompanied by a young priest, Tobias surmounts each obstacle he faces and returns to Nineveh for a final confrontation with the Circle of Brothers that will determine the fate of freed men everywhere. "Tobit and the Hoodoo Man" exceeds the limits of historical fiction and can only be classified as a ‘mystical tale’ that challenges its readers to believe the unbelievable.
