The Heart Lands is a love story, set in both the 1800's and the 1900's. The Heart Lands is a tale of violence, interweaving the U.S. Civil War and the Mormon Wars of the 1800's with the militia movements and the U.S. Special Forces of the 1900's. The Heart Lands veers from the present to the past, from humor to passion to violence, but it does so deftly and easily. And as we delve into the story of Andrew Stone's romance with Sydney, we find all of the good and all of the evil that can result from falling in love and the breaking of hearts.
