Overview

Wrongly kicked out of the Confederate Army for dereliction of duty, JD Thornton sets out to run down Hugh Garrett, the corporal who accused him. In the middle of his search, he encounters Lucy and Floyd Coulter, who are headed for the Llano River Valley. Lucy is the remarried widow of a Union officer who died at Brown's Ferry, the battle that involved Thornton's dishonorable discharge. Thornton can't help but feel responsible for the couple's safe passage and vows to escort them to their new home.

Meet the Author

Kent Conwell grew up in the wide-open Texas Panhandle in the town of Wheeler, population 848. His love for the West came naturally, for at age 14, his grandfather had bull whacked his way from Tennessee to the Panhandle, where he met his future wife.

After moving to Fort Worth, Kent was more at home in the stockyards than at school. Somehow, he managed to earn a B.S. and began teaching. Later, he moved to Port Neches, where he acquired a M.Ed. and Ph.D. In his career as a successful educator, his love for writing about the West, a period in history unique to America, has never waned. He has won awards for short stories, screenplays, mysteries, and westerns.

Llano River Valley is Kent’s thirty-second western for AVALON.
