An Authors Collection Novel
Sixteen-year-old Jake Rivers places a stone at the head of his horse’s grave, says good-bye to older cousin Bob Lee Boggs, to the house in the Texas Panhandle where he has lived alone, to friends and the life he loved, and heads east, into his past. His life spirals downward as involvement with a bootlegger’s children leads to brushes with the law and confrontations with death. His grandfather’s lost fiddle, a symbol of his innocent past, seems to hold the key to his future.
