Maddy finds more than she bargains for when she accepts her estranged husband’s help to uncover her mother's secret past. Growing up on Willow Shade, a Kentucky farm, Maddy believes her life was idyllic. Then her mother's death discloses her birth certificate. The line, "Father's Name" contains the word, "Unknown".

In her consuming search for truth, Maddy discovers she’s a descendant of the infamous outlaw, Jesse James. A crazed madman believes a James’ inheritance exists, which rightfully belongs to him, and he’ll stop at nothing to acquire it.

With a stalker trailing them, Maddy and Kenneth struggle to solve the mystery and unravel the secrets before someone gets hurt or even killed. If they resolve all the puzzles in her mother’s past, will they repair the damage done to their marriage by dishonesty? One answer may hold all the keys. Who is Maddy's birth father?"

EXCERPT

She exited I-65 onto the gravel State road. White-faced Herefords dotted fields of sweet clover. Corn tassels nodded and tobacco stalks waved green arms in the wind. Maddy pulled the Pinto over, slid out of the car, and stepped onto the Jasper River Bridge.

"This is it, Welby." She shifted her eyes to the passenger seat, patted the dog's head and loosened his collar. "If I had a dime for each time I played under this bridge, I'd be rich now."

Leaning on the paint-peeled guardrail, she chewed on the tip of her left forefinger. Lacy white foam collected on the banks of the swollen stream below. It had rained yesterday.

Maddy sighed and summoned her courage. Willow Shade Farm spread across the sloping fields beyond. She swept her hand in the direction of the old plantation diminished to an ordinary farm. "When I was a young girl, I made believe I was Scarlet O'Hara and the farm was Tara." She surveyed the scene before her. The red roof of the main house dwarfed the smaller buildings like the owners had once dominated the slaves who subsisted in the little houses.

She took a deep breath, got back into the car, and followed the winding drive up to the farmhouse. Yeah, I know. Now it's more like Tara, post bellum. That old verandah's going to collapse one of these days. She shielded her eyes from the morning sun with her hand. "Look, there's Daddy on the porch."

Daddy leaned against a tall, white column, shoulders stooped, one thumb hitched into a strap of his bib-overalls, scrutinizing the car pulling into his drive. Howard Livingston would always be her real daddy even after she found the man who sired her. She wasn't looking to replace him. She only wanted to find her heritage. Daddy met her at the end of the walk. Weathered hands pulled a red handkerchief out of his hind pocket and blotted his eyes. "Maddy, you've come home. I been praying you'd show up. Been worried about you. Going through a divorce has to be hard. On Kenneth, too, I reckon."

"I'm fine. Really I am. Wouldn't know about Kenneth."
