In Wrath Remember Mercy: The Redemption of Torquil Dhu (Paperback)
"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Young Confederate soldier Torquil Drummond has a pure heart for God until a Yankee officer murders his family. His world is blown to pieces; he is traumatized; his rationality is overset. Berserk for vengeance, he's driven by his "daemon" toward spiritual and bodily destruction. He repents of vengeance and hatred and tries to walk righteously upon an earth that teeters under him, because he feels God has forsaken him and justice is dead. It's more a sacrifice for him to live than to die. Man versus himself, man versus God, and man versus principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places, are Torquil's battles to regain his original character and Christian faith. Through war and suffering, repentance, and striving but failing to overcome the "daemon," he finds that only God can truly heal and redeem. Torquil's redemption is told in three love stories: man and God, father and son, and man and woman.
