A well written book by a talented writer.
Bobby R. Woodall pens the western tale of ex-Union Officer Dan Mercer and his adventures. Dan was a prisoner during the Civil War in Andersonville, and after 10 months suffering in less than livable conditions he was released to resume or better yet restart a new life. California beckoned to him, but he would soon find out that a family by the name of Abernathy needed him more. Along the way of finding out what to do with his life, he was acquainted with a female by the name of Glory B. Stahl. She tried to steal Dan¿s horse one night after her escape from some out of hand confederate soldiers, but ended up being knocked out cold by Dan. When she came to, they made fast friends and after a short time of being together enjoying one another she up and left with no goodbyes or no reasoning. He however decided to stay with the Abernathy family and spiff up their ranch. Seven years he spent being the man of the ranch one day out of the blue he was approached by the United States of America Treasury Dept. Secret Service with news concerning Glory. Dan is asked to become an undercover agent of sorts in hopes of finding out the truth about the counterfeit ring and if Glory is indeed mixed up in it all. Dan agrees for one reason, to find out if the love he felt for Glory still burns, or if it is finally time to just let go. Bobby R. Woodall is a very good storyteller, he mixes his western up with things from the good `ol west, saloon brawls and all. Mercer¿s Manor was a joy to read, it being my first western without all that girly romance, I rather enjoyed it. 4 out of 5 Hearts
