This is truly a lovely story of a forgotten child who was thrust aside by a father who was unsure the child was his. It then moves to his adult life in Texas and how his life becomes intertwined with the community and a newcomer whose behavior adds intrigue. It is a story of settlers in Texas, a love story, and twists and turns in life.
