The faded roses of yesterday waft back with compelling intensity, touching the lives of those today in a sad yet often uplifting way.
Fern Smith-Brown has written large the souls of Josiah Johnson, Cassie De Carlo, and Sam Sloan in this finely crafted novel of the past. It explores the 30s with trains, hobos, and hard times. But always speaks of love. More
Was Josiah Johnson Jake's father? His biological father? His sister said it doesn't matter— but it damn sure does matter. He no longer is content to push the question back— to thrust it aside to that cobwebby region of suppressed thought. He wanted to know!
He had dodged the thought for years, but now it burned at him. A man had the right to know. And, he's damn sure gonna find out.
Fern Smith-Brown is the author of "Plantation," "Unforgettable," "Charleston Two-Step," "On Monastery Ridge" and many other historical romances.
