Overview

Note: This book is a follow up to another of my novels, "Follow The Sun".
Leaving behind his Mohegan and Arapaho wives and his sons in their cabin in frontier Colorado, Sean Eaton is compelled to return to his homeland of Ireland.
When word came that his cousin Grady had been murdered on the orders of the Earl of Morrison, Sean remembered clearly how that it was Grady who made it possible for him to escape being killed and start a new life in America.
The powerful Earl had learned of Grady's assistance in helping Sean to escape being killed by the Earl's men. Now, Grady was dead, and his wife and children were without a husband and a father. The burden of responsibility lay heavy on Sean's heart, and he knew he could do nothing less than return to Ireland and settle accounts with the man who had ordered Grady's murder.
It was a difficult challenge that lay ahead,and well he knew, that his chances of ever seeing his own family again were remote.
Still, the task ahead was a matter of honor. To Sean Eaton, that was everything, even if it meant the loss his own life.

Meet the Author

I was born in Rector, Arkansas, a small farming based town in Northeast Arkansas. Later, my parents moved to St. Louis in search of better economic opportunity. At age 16, disallusioned and bored with the “One Size Fits All” educational system, I dropped out in the 10th grade.
Just as soon as I turned 17, I joined the Marine Corps. The education the Corps provided, wasn't always polite and pleasant, but it most certainly was not boring. My four year enlistment included one year in South Vietnam. 7 November, 1965 to 6 November, 1966. At the end of my enlistment, having attained the rank of Sgt E-5, I returned to civilian life.
After nine months as an Industrial Engineering Clerk, I took advantage of an opportunity to move into transportation. For the next 34 years, I was a dispatcher and driver supervisor in the Trucking Industry.
In 2011, the rise in popularity of E-books caught my attention. A life long avid reader, I'd always believed I could write a book, but didn't know how to go about getting it published. The birth of E-Books changed all that. In the fall of 2011, fulfilling a life long dream, I published my first book, The Sparrows Whisper.
Today, my wife, Mary Katherine, and I, live in a small rural town in Southwestern Illinois. With the encouragement of family and friends, I've published a total of 13 novels. The split between my books has been divided pretty evenly between Mysteries and Westerns. Work on number 14, is under way.
For all those that have taken the time to read my books, I appreciate your interest very much.

    Back and forth

    Perhaps a little too fast paced. This could have been a much longer novel, but I liked it anyway!

    Very good

    A simple read with a lot of action. Sean must be the luckiest Irish in history as bullets always miss him. Liked story more than the first. Enjoyed the chapter headings. Any more adventures for the frontiersman?
