Inhaltsangabe: FROM PROFESSOR RANDALL'S NOTEBOOK. . . FIELD RESEARCH SITE : Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County, Illinois.
GOAL: Discover how 18th century Ohio River pirates preyed on settlers.
PERSONAL NOTE: File under interesting job perks--Trevor Dalton, best dating lead in a while. A lot like Brett, only he's not off-limits.
Professor Merrideth Randall has an insatiable curiosity about the past. Fortunately, unlike other historians, she has the means to satisfy it--an amazing computer program that lets her rewind time.
Her interest turns to the 18th century river pirates of Cave-in-Rock who preyed on the thousands of settlers coming down the Ohio River on flatboats, heading for new lives on the western frontier. For a time, that stretch of the river was a black hole, where whole families disappeared along with their hopes and dreams. And treasures. And the only way for Merrideth to find out what happened to them is to use her software to get inside the head of Samuel Mason, the mastermind behind the attacks.
Pirates were not the only outlaws to ever infest Cave-in-Rock. Merrideth's visit there coincides with Hellhound Homecoming, a wild annual gathering of lawless bikers and punk bands. A confrontation with five attendees has her wondering if her curiosity will be the death of her.
But God sends a guardian angel to her rescue in the form of Trevor Dalton, a tattooed biker who reminds her of two important truths: you should not judge a person by his exterior (or his mode of transportation) and you should not measure your sins against another person's because you'll both come up short. He has a lot in common with Brett Garrison, her McKendree College colleague who's hoping for more than just a friendship with Merrideth. Yet the two men are as different as night and day. Which one should she choose--the man who is safe or the man with a past?
Über den Autor: Deborah Heal is the author of the Time and Again history mystery trilogy and the Rewinding Time Series: inspirational novels of history, mystery & romance, which have been described as ?Back to the Future meets virtual reality with a dash of Seventh Heaven thrown in.? She was born not far from the Old Slave House featured in her novel Every Hill and Mountain and grew up just down the road from the settings of Time and Again and Unclaimed Legacy. As a child she was intrigued by stories of the southern Illinois river pirates and wrote about them in How Sweet the Sound. Today she lives with her husband in Monroe County, Illinois, not far from where the early pioneers of her novel Once Again struggled to survive amidst Indian attacks. She has a special connection to her novel Only One Way Home. Unlike the characters in it who were forced to walk the Trail of Tears, her great, great grandmother?s Cherokee family remained safely in North Carolina. Deborah enjoys reading, gardening, and learning about regional history. She and her husband have three grown children and five grandchildren. She loves to interact with her readers, who may learn more about the history behind the books at her website www.deborahheal.com and her Facebook author page www.facebook.com/DeborahHeal.
