Shenandoah is a multi-generational story of two Virginia families—the MacAlpines and Ballantines—in the first half of the 20th
Century. Through the lenses of heredity and environment, the novel examines how human evolution slowly progresses
by the combination, recombination and reappearance of traits. Randolph MacAlpine, scion of these two families, personifies this process of change. Within this seemingly random variation,
there is an order and pattern beneath the surface of the human struggles of
war, adversity, the drive to procreate and ultimately to transcend. Above all, the human soul is ever at the center of this evolutionary unfolding.
