Pat, and husband Howard, toiled and rejoiced in equal parts while living in a big house on a big lake for many years. They currently reside near Fort Worth, Texas and enjoy the urban conveniences and proximity to family.
Shadows Of The Comanche
The McGregor family, homesteading land on the Texas frontier, faced perils from man, animals and the weather.
Through it all, Jane must deal with her strange gift of “second sight” inherited from her grandmother, which causes her to “see” and communicate with shadows or spirits of long-dead Comanche who possessed the land many years ago.

It represents an accumulation of learning covering many years of attending church, studying God's word and communing with the Holy Spirit. I pray that some hearts may be touched, some Questions answered, some puzzles made clear through my sharing of personal events and experiences.
