The Civil Wars of Jonah Moran is the story of Jessica Moran, a woman whose deep sense of family loyalty collides with her equally strong sense of justice. After a failed marriage, Jessica has returned to Misp, a small logging town on the rugged Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest, to be close again to the brother she has always protected. Haunted by painful losses from her past, and still at odds with her autocratic mother, Lila, she settles back into the community, determined to help Jonah control his eccentricities and lead a more normal life.
But then someone sets fire to a local halfway house, killing three of the four ex-cons who called it home as they tried to rebuild their lives. When Jonah is suspected of the arson, Jessica instinctively defends him, refusing to believe he might have done it. Yet even as evidence against Jonah mounts, most of Misp seems ready to forgive and protect him, closing ranks with a small town's contradictory swirl of community allegiance, bigotry, compassion, and malice. Jessica must confront her own fears, come to her own conclusions, and somehow reconcile her love for her brother and her grudging respect and growing feelings for Callum Luke, the lover who once betrayed her and who now heads up the investigation that may send Jonah to prison for life.
