A gripping story of family betrayal, deep despair, and finding the strength to follow your heart.
Maggie Sharrod is betrayed by her own father and forced into marriage to a powerful, ruthless business man 31 years older. Set in the depression era of Fort Worth in 1936, she is pulled into the fun-time crowd and debauchery of the Highway to Hell, a stretch of casinos and dance halls on the Jacksboro Highway. Hopeless and resigned to accept her lot in life, the situation suddenly turns unbearable when she becomes the pawn in a business deal gone bad. If Maggie has the courage to change her fate, the price could be her life.

Produced by the writing critique group, WordsmithSix, it is the first book of a continuing anthology series featuring stories set on historic Route 66 Highway.
