In the shadow of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom telecast in 1963 New Orleans, Louisiana, Lela Chevalier Roberts continues her recount of the Chevalier family history to her great-grandson, Julian Charles Chamberie, with the life of her late husband, James Roberts in 19th Century Louisiana. Assisted by angels and heaven, James escapes annihilation at the hand of his father and flees the war torn American South to France, taking refuge with his cousins Emmanuel and Jonathan. Yet, Mammon the Devil pursues him, destroying the life he has created. Clawing his way out of the madness of Hell, the memory of an ancient love compels James to continue on in spite of Satan ploys. He returns to America at war’s end, finding himself faced with the foretold love he has dreamed, at last uniting with his Rose, Lela. Nevertheless, the devil is busy, and executes his greatest plot to destroy Lela’s and James’ love forever, jeopardizing the lineage and birth of the End Time King, Le Baton.
