Veiled Revenge "In Spite Of Flaming Love"

   Two families, in their early years, were neighbors up an isolated hollow in the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia. Here in this hollow the roots of this saga are embedded. During these years the despicable acts by one, against the other, are seared into a young mind never to be forgotten.

   Many years later, in the city, unexplained, nasty and frustrating events begin affecting the young man’s life. Though infuriated, he remains blind to the possibility that someone is orchestrating his difficulties. The initiator constantly struggles with her conscience but is committed to levy payback to satisfy her long held hate. Finally, when he becomes convinced somebody is determined to make his life miserable, he has no clue who would perpetrate such acts.

   Meanwhile his heart burns with flaming love, as he searches for the woman, his high school mate. Due to his non-recognition of her and total trust, even though they meet and talk, she continues her payback. He is convinced his school mate (she) would never stoop so low. Revenge is taken with no thought of hurt to the initiator. Hard lessons abound. Past actions become part of one’s future, inscribed on character, never to be erased. Unexpectedly, pulsating love rushes at her from different directions, creating nagging dilemma and anxiety. One’s actions offer rewards and consequences. Emotions explode.

   These riveting, common, ordinary and passionate characters will bring tears, laughter and heartache as their emotions surge through the highs and lows of love and living.

Go Get Eva

   Eva Moore was born in 1888 into a family whose lifestyle was crude. She had no electricity, drew water from an underground well, cooked and heated with wood-burning stoves and "lived off the land." Her iron-willed character developed early as she learned how to deal with fear. She married young, children came early and life began with much promise. But the years soon brought tragedies beginning with the most devastating, losing her devoted husband as she expected her ninth child.

   She learned how to survive and be self-sufficient by using all available pioneering methods, in this developing and wild mountainous area. She also delivered babies, cared for the ill and became the "back up" for the local country doctor. When called upon she never refused, even walked miles through deep snow to stay with and care for a dear friend who was gravely ill. People came for Eva when the doctor was not available, which was often in the mountains.

     Probably the greatest transformation of a society ever to occur, was during her lifetime; from the horse and buggy to atomic energy. All this change, however, had little impact on her life and struggles. She had to deal with the horror of two World Wars and the Great Depression of the 1930s. In spite of the these catastrophic events, along with her daily struggles, she never lost her zest for living or the song in her heart. Through this book you will experience her struggles, joys and her determined desire to survive. You will come to admire this wonderful woman, one of millions who made this country into what it stands for today; the beacon of democracy and freedom by and for a free people.

     This is a "must read" true story.
