About this product
- DescriptionAbout Morgan's Crossing; A devastating letter addressed to critically wounded soldier Orville Jenkins arrives to a army hospital outside Paris. His beloved Kelly Hennessy, mother of his son, had succumbed to the great flu pandemic. Private First Class, Orville Jenkins, before drawing his final breath had but one request. Worried about him and Kelly's son, Morgan, Orville called on fellow soldier and hometown friend, geraint, to intercede and protect Morgan from the stigma surrounding growing up in an orphanage. Orville intended a better life for the son he would never see; he wanted Geranit's parents to raise the child. The young soldier did as promised and brought young Morgan home to his folks, Mari and Rhodri Evans. The unsuspecting coalming town had its share of disturbances from the Jenkins clan but ne so menacing as Bill Jenkins. A manipulating lunatic who sets his sights on a local boy named Morgan. Who Bill believes is the offspring of his deceased brother, Orville. Obsessed with the boy, Bill befriends Morgan and seeks out a way to right the wrong done to the Jenkins name and comes up with a plan. After murdering the boy's grandfather, Sean Hennessy, Bill seeks out a relationship with Sean's newly widowed wife, Cate, who after years of abuse failed to mourn or report his passing. Cate's devotion to her friends and family trumped Bill's plan to flee New Salem with her and Morgan at his side. His mistake would eventually cost someone their life.
- Author BiographyBorn in Michigan's downriver district, author Sharon M. Clarke, the eldest of five siblings grew up in a traditional middleclass home. Her mother was a homemaker while her laboring father toiled in the tough steel industry. Each year, during school holidays, the young family packed their bits and bobs and traversed the Ohio, Pennsylvania Turnpike to visit the kinfolk left behind. Sharon, being young and impressionable, absorbed the romantic tales her, Pap Pap, great grandfather told while exploring the by then abandoned coal yard, coke ovens and slate dump. From a child's prospective, the combination was magical and influenced the author to write her own story about the mines. Her first novel, Mourning Redemption, became such a hit with her readers that she followed their insistance and wrote its sequel. Sharon's keen whit and sometimes caustic sense of humor comes shining through the pages in both her novels. While Mourning Redemption made the reader cry, Morgan's Crossing will make them cheer. With pen and paper put aside, Sharon will return to her love of painting and plans to learn the guitar.
