Excerpt from The Wire Cutters

Mrs. Hilliard met the messenger at her front gate.

She had seen him from an upper window, coming along the plantation road, his open buggy almost overtopped by the tall cane on either side. She felt sure that the coatless person in blue linen trousers and panama hat, who approached in a leisurely fashion warranted by the heat of the September afternoon, was the bearer of the long-expected decision. She turned, trembling, from the window, seized by an almost irresistible impulse to rush into an inner room, close and lock the door, and so at least postpone the inevitable revelation. The next moment she had caught up a garden hat and was descending the broad stairway, pale but composed, at least in outward appearance. She waved back the negro lad who had started on a run to open the gate, and passed swiftly along the shaded carriage-drive.

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.
