COLORADO TERRITORY – 1871
Charlie is a young man now with much to learn about himself, the world in which he lives, and the God in whom he has placed his trust. The little ranch at the foot of the Rockies seems to be closing in on him. Seized by restlessness, he sets out to join a cattle drive north across the foothills and prairie to the rip-roaring new town of Denver. On the trail and in the city, Charlie finds the awakenings of love and learns about honor, trust, and the need on the frontier for men who are both tough and tender, who know where to find their strength.
Another entertaining and heartwarming “Mysterious Ways” story for the entire family.

A Frontier Novel (#3 Mysterious Ways)
COLORADO TERRITORY – 1872
When Charlie gets the amazing and unexpected news that he’s now a millionaire, he once again leaves the cozy Colorado ranch at the foot of the Rockies – this time to take the train to Missouri. He encounters Jesse James outlaws, rogue relatives, new romance, and skeletons in the family closet. These adventures test Charlie’s budding manhood, skills, and faith in ways that will entertain and inspire readers of all ages.
256 pgs. $11.99
“A story of secrets, betrayal, friendship and redemption. A continuation of Charlie’s story that builds on the first two books. While the plot of this book stands on its own, knowing the story from the first two books gives depth to the story. I really like the size of this series. The books are larger than a mass media book, but smaller and easier to handle than a traditional trade paper size. Very comfortable.” ~ Author’s Choice Reviews
