AN UNEXPECTED EVENT
A sudden loss in Carson Alden’s life brings with it an unexpected surprise that carries him home to Turner Junction. Though it’s the town he was born to, it’s also a place he barely remembers. Upon his arrival at the historic Bolton Hotel, he is immediately faced with images of yesteryear, photographs on the walls that illustrate the town’s rich history. There he also meets an elderly woman known as “the Duchess”, the town’s revered keeper of the legends, a woman who loved great and lost greater.
A NEW BEGINNING
Lauren Hendricks first came to Turner Junction to care for her elderly grandfather, Edgar, a man who loves nothing more than riding along the Empire One’s rusted rails. Now a local real estate agent, it is Lauren who will hand Carson the keys to his house, helping him unlock the secret of why he was taken from Turner Junction after the untimely death of his parents. But Carson will find more find than a new home and a new life, he will unwittingly give rest to the town’s one remaining legend.
From the acclaimed author of TILTING AT WINDMILLS and WHEN THE WORLD WAS SMALL, here is a portrait of the past as brought to life by two people determined to uncover a series of town legends, never guessing what the future has in store for them both.
