Overview

Ben Jensen is an aging cowboy with a broken heart and a tortured soul. He is increasingly adrift in a modern world into which, more and more, he doesn't seem to fit. The sorrows and losses that have scarred his life and crushed his soul are close to taking what's left of the ranch and home his Grandfathers built. His self respect and his life are circling the drain when fate drops him into the path of Amanda Blake, a desperate young woman and her son. The girl is struggling to escape a life of brutal slavery and give her son the chance at a decent life. Acting out of the habits of a long and un-gentle life, Ben finds he is unable to walk away from that life and death struggle of a helpless woman and her son. For him, there are no options. The Honor and Values of his ancestors, and everything he is demand; He must help. Along the way he discovers that there is indeed life and Love left in his heart, and a reason for fresh hope. As they struggle to survive, the idea begins to form that though they might be an unlikely pair; his need for her is as great as her need for him. Together, they find the courage to create for each other, A Pair of Second Chances.

Meet the Author

He was born back east and fit there like the proverbial square peg in a round hole. Lucky for him his family moved to Arizona when he was but 13. Within months of hitting that desert sand he was horseback under a wide brim black hat, wearing tall boots with jinglin' spurs, wranglin' for a local rancher. He grew up chasin' wild cows through the Arizona chaparral. That square peg had found the home he'd been born to fit. While the best part of his life has been spent cowboying from Arizona to Montana, parts of the last many years have been spent as a soldier, carpet cleaner, hard rock miner, carpenter, night watchman, truck driver, hardware clerk, holster maker, wood cutter, and horse rustler. It's from that wide variety of experience that he's able to draw the raw materials to bring his characters to life. They form the foundation for his stories of honor, sacrifice and "damn the consequences I'm riding this trail my own way" tough hided western stubbornness.

Good story, but the writer has a bad habbit of telling you exactly what upcoming plot twists to expect two to three pages before they occur. While it doesnt ruin the story, its like watching a movie with that annoying friend who already saw it an keeps saying, "oh watch this part, you're not gonna believe what he does to that girl." There is no way you could have ever expected how annoyed you would be by it. Words words words. BOOM! Suddenly annoyance. You feel like you already knew what was going to happen...oh wait...you did, beause the author already told you it was about to.
