Welcome... glad you could stop by!
The concept (and reality) of heroism is definitely a big part of my family saga, The Liberty & Property Legends, as the title of the current volume would indicate. I think we need heroes, and I believe they rise up naturally, human nature being what it is. And to my way of thinking there are all kinds of heroes and acting in different ways.
American poet and activist Maya Angelou is quoted as saying: "I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people."
So, what's your idea of 'hero' ?
What qualities make a hero?
And who are the heroes in your life?
The grand saga continues...
A PLACE AMONG HEROES, Book 2:
Return of Hope
Chicago, May 1886. A time of anarchy in the Gilded Age. Two estranged yet much loved and celebrated heroes of the Alliance reconnect. As each negotiates the unyielding crossroads of their lives, the only signposts left standing are truth and forgiveness. Finding the strength inside yourself to be hero of your own life just might be the most courageous thing you've ever done.
When the world says give up, hope whispers try one more time...
A PLACE AMONG HEROES, Book 2: Return of Hope has been busy taking spaces in the fall/winter and spring catalogs of IBPA's indie titles (for your consideration).
Back to the beginning... Wyoming Territory, the Fall of 1883. In the heart of America’s ranch lands, two young men fight each in their own way the trouble engulfing their families they call the Alliance. As the struggle becomes tragedy, an even more perilous quest begins - for justice - shaking long-held beliefs in liberty and property to the core. And so the saga begins...
“The depth of the story reminded me of Lonesome Dove but with a marker all its own.“
