Broken after his family is murdered, rancher Del Lawson signs on to a cattle drive along the Goodnight-Loving trail in 1870. He is unaware he’s still in danger. When he falls for a pretty Army nurse, the killers target her. If he’s to recover from his grief and build a new life, Del must set out on a gritty hunt for the men who are hunting him. Meanwhile, Del’s mother, Maybelle, doesn’t know her son survived that murderous night. When she discovers the gold the killers are after, she uses the treasure in an elaborate masquerade to take the murderers down. Will mother and son’s plans reap justice—or destroy what’s left of the Lawson clan?
My love affair with the written word began in grade school, when my fifth grade teacher made us read a book and write a book report each week of the school year. I devoured every Zane Grey book I could get my hands on that year, sparking a lifelong love for the American West of the 19th century. Finally, I'm a student of the Civil War, and have written the first of what I suspect will be several novels centered on that agonizing, but captivating period.
