IT MUST BE NOW THE KINGDOM COMING By Perry Lentz CIVIL WAR NOVEL Author of: THE FALLING HILLS Ex-Library Book. Copyright: 1973. No Edition stated. Third Printing, November, 1973.

A powerful story of men in crisis and the brutalization of the human spirit that takes place during times of unbearable stress. A penetrating and ironic look at the clash of wills of two strong men, each trying to reshape the world in his own image. Thomas Jefferson Mallory is a former Confederate officer and owner of Sycamore, a sequestered Georgian mansion. Sergeant John Deall is a New Englander whose fervent belief in the Union cause leads to a quest for some divine pattern or plan to give meaning to the destruction and looting around him. Both Deall and Mallory are aware of the decay and disaster the war will bring, each is aware that his view of the universe must include an acceptance of human weakness, and yet each refuses to surrender to the borderline fanaticism of the other. With keen and sardonic insight, Perry Lentz explores the world of Sycamore, poised just beyond the violence of war, and still steeped in the safety, comfort, and graciousness of the past. For Mallory and his young wife Celia, a couple whose marriage is plagued by a mixture of seduction and inhibition, the house is the ancestral tie that binds them together. So too, it dictates a way of life that has existed for years---formalized, genteel, and discreet, ignoring the undercurrents of pent-up superstition and frustration that ripple beneath the surface. With rare understanding, the author pulls the reader farther and farther into the center of this insular and supposedly idyllic world, revealing the intense, unvoiced emotions of his characters, as they revel in their illusory invulnerability. Slowly, they become aware of the impending danger lucking around the plantation, and finally, their nightmarish visions become a reality, as Deall and his Union patrol explode onto the scene, shattering their illusions.
