Overview

Can a look into the past decide a man's future?
Every family has its secrets. To Cole Sage the greatest mystery of all is why his parents would never speak of his grandparents.
In Cole Dust, Cole Sage inherits a house and small farm in Oklahoma from a long lost cousin. Orvin, Oklahoma is filled with colorful characters that open their hearts and town to the last member of the Sage clan. As his relationship with Kelly Mitchell grows Cole struggles with the desire to stay in Orvin.
A dusty old trunk in the attic opens to Cole the world of the grandfather her never knew. Through the journals of George Sage, we travel from the pre-World War I America to the late fifties and the story of a man who is tormented by alcohol, racism, the Dust Bowl, the Great Depression and an addiction to gambling that have left two generations scarred and resentful. Possessing a devil may care charm and a heart torn between love and duty George Sage takes a dark secret to his grave and a link to the grandson who would never know him. In George, Cole sees many of the struggles he faces in faith and fate in his own life.
As he rebuilds the old farm and reads over forty years of the triumphs and disgrace of a family history he’s never known. Along the way, Cole discovers a love and pride in this man that his parents tried to erase.
The last volumes of the George Sage’s story unlock a secret locked away for fifty year and that will change Cole Sage forever.

Meet the Author

Micheal Maxwell was taught the beauty and majesty of the English language by Bob Dylan, Robertson Davies, Charles Dickens and Leonard Cohen.

Mr. Maxwell has traveled the globe, dined with politicians, rock stars and beggars. He has rubbed shoulders with priests and murderers, surgeons and drug dealers, each one giving him a part of themselves that will live again in the pages of his books.

The Cole Sage series brings to life a new kind of hero. Short on vices, long on compassion and dedication to a strong sense of making things right. As a journalist he writes with conviction and purpose. As a friend he is not afraid to bend the law a bit to help and protect those he loves.

Micheal Maxwell writes from a life of love, music, film, and literature. He lives in California with his lovely wife of thirty seven years.

    In Many Respects This Is A One Family Historical Novel

    While getting ready to take his annual vacation , Cole Sage is contacted by a estate lawyer. He finds that he has inherited a house on a five acre farm in Oklahoma, that at one time belonged to his Grandfather. Cole quickly changes his vacation plans, because county law requires him to live in the house for 30 days before he can gain ownership. While cleaning and painting the house, he discovers a trunk of old journals in the attic . Through these he gets to learn about his grandfather and the family he never knew. These journals were started when his Grandfather was just a twelve year old child and cover the period up to, just before he died in 1957. Through these pages Cole gets to learn about both the good times and bad times, that shaped both his fathers and Grandfathers lives. He also gets a better understanding of why his father did not maintain contact with his family. As he discovers the triumphs and tragedies that shaped his grandfathers life. He finds a love for and a pride in the man, his parents tried so hard to erase, and solace in a family he never got to know.

    In many respects this is a one family historical novel. Covering the period starting with pre-World War One, America. Through the heartache of the Dust Bowl, that had the family selling their home and possessions and moving to Colorado Springs. The lean years of the Great Depression, when the family moves again, this time to the Pacific Northwest of Bellingham , WA. The Cole family saga is a tragic story, filled with heartache and prejudice, the story of lost love and a lost dreams . Through learning about his past, Cole Sage finds out a lot about himself, as we discover a lot more about Cole also.

    The thing I enjoy most in all the Michaels Maxwell books, is what I call the back story. The story of Cole Sages development and evolution, as he confronts whatever obstacles the main story line throws at him. Over the proceeding books, we see him grow as a journalist, a father, a grandfather, a friend , and a overall person.
