Volume Five  
A PLACE AMONG HEROES, Book 1:  Rise of Hope


Journeys often end up where they began... 

Finding the strength inside yourself to be the hero of your own life just might be the most courageous thing you've ever done.

Spring, 1885...

The conclusion of Cheyenne’s famous murder trial brings with it a desperate aftermath. As justice is within reach, a suspicious fire inside the courthouse has created a dangerous set of circumstances, particularly for heart-broken sheriff Cliff Ryan.


Foremost, a key decision regarding the trial’s outcome will test the resilience of the Alliance to the limit.

Who will rise, who will fall? Some face their prospects with fearless resolve, others with resignation. And while Luke grapples with an increasingly uncertain faith in a future he has worked so hard for, how can Jennifer rise above her past and a promise she can’t keep to find the closure she needs and deserves? 


Out of the remnants of the troubled past, striving to find their place in a new reality, the heroes of the Alliance must brave the journey to where their destiny is calling them. 

Rise of Hope is Book 1 in the fifth volume in The Liberty & Property Legends saga, beginning where Volume Four THE HOUR OF EVIDENCE left off. Finding the strength inside yourself to be the hero of your own life just might be the most courageous thing you’ve ever done.

"The future was now spreading itself out like the never-ending grasslands around Laramie in summer, a restless green-gold ocean, swaying as far as the eye could see into the familiar territory of vague maybes and sweeping onwards over the horizon to the unknown land of no idea and anything could happen. No longer something to be imagined, and once unthinkable, the future was startling - and unavoidable."                                   ~ Luke Taylor,   A PLACE AMONG HEROES, Book 1: Rise of Hope.
