Knowing he’s about to die, Hank Dawson summons his grandson, Michael Dawson, to the nursing home for one last visit. Hank, better known as “Papa,” raised Michael but feels guilty because he gambled away the entire inheritance Michael’s parents left him when he was just a boy. Even though Michael resents the old man, he shows up anyway. Hank apologizes for all his failures and hands his grandson the key to a drawer in his desk at home. He wants Michael to have the journal in that drawer and calls it his “legacy.” After the old man dies, Michael drives to his grandfather’s house and retrieves the small book. The journal falls open to a well-visited page, and Michael is stunned. What Papa has written on the yellowed paper is no legacy but rather a huge embarrassment. How can Michael possibly live with what he’s just read?

About the Author
B. HALLER is the author of six novels, including Time Will Tell, the unique story of a strange camera three college students find in a deserted cabin, an object that can do far more than any camera ever seen before, and Time Will Reveal, a sequel to Time Will Tell, that takes a newspaper reporter into unending dangers as she attempts to make a name for herself with the same camera.
Haller has also written Murky Waters, the tale of a big-time basketball player who walks away from the horror of a car plunging both him and his girlfriend into a lake, hiding the traumatic event in the hope no harm will come to him or his career but finds out differently.
Legacy, Haller’s fourth novel, speaks of a small journal an elderly man leaves his grandson, telling him it’s his “legacy,” but the embarrassment is more than the young man can handle, until he realizes he can use it to his advantage.
The Letter tells of a time midway into the Civil War when Abraham Lincoln decides to end the war on all fronts and pens a letter to Jefferson Davis, stating his proposal, then asks a trusted captain to hand deliver the document to the general. In the present day, a woman moves into a house on an historical street in Pulaski, TN, and the story switches from the past to the present until it becomes clear how Providence has brought the two lives—the woman and the captain—together.
Haller’s sixth novel, Trapped, tells of a young couple that travels from Texas to Virginia to purchase a rare Bentley the man has seen advertised in a motor magazine, an excursion that quickly becomes a terrifying experience.
