with Janet Chester Bly, Russell Bly, Michael Bly & Aaron Bly
Finishing Dad’s novel was a family affair. Can a committee create fiction? We had the passion to find out. Here’s how we did it.
It’s 1905. Two orphans flee from Oregon’s Tillamook Head. One of them is branded a hero. Do they tell the truth and risk the wrath of a dangerous man? Meanwhile, a retired lawman searches for his missing U.S. Marshal friend while he grapples with the game of golf on behalf of a celebrity tournament.
Rancher and widower Stuart Brannon had no intention of leaving his beloved Arizona Territory to attend the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition in Portland. His life no longer consisted of men to track down … outlaws trying to kill him … gangs preying on the innocent. Then the telegrams came … how could he refuse Lady Harriet Reed-Fletcher and the President of the United States.
