The Back Cover Copy says

Cathy Stevens is distraught when her parents announce they must move to a small town in New Mexico. Her only consolation she will be able to have her own horse. And on her first day exploring, a Horses for Sale sign grabs her attention.

Randy Lanigan, son of the bank president and ranch owner, most popular boy in high school, and star quarterback, shows Cathy the horses for sale and asks her out. Taken with her beauty and wit, he wants her for his next girl.

Shane Red Crow, an Apache who lives with his great-great-grandfather, returns to high school because of a promise made to his mother. Twenty years old, he is a loner with a bad reputation. He too seems to have a soft spot for Cathy.

When Cathy finds herself in trouble, will it be Randy or Shane whose sweet embrace she truly needs?

The latest news ~

Some years ago, I wrote a short story about a teenage girl who gets pregnany by one guy and marries another. It's set in 1957. Since I've never read it at my critique group, I sent it to a friend to read. She said she couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting, so I'm guessing it's not too bad You can get a sneak peek by clicking the link in the right hand column.

My three Lighting short stories - Catch the Lightning, Capture the Lightning and Seize Lightning are now combined in one volume titled LIGHTNING STRIKES. It also contains two Amanda Ashley stories, Sandy's Angel and Jessie's Girl.

Well, I'm sorry to say, my publisher rejected FOLLOW THE LIGHTNING because it's a time travel book and they're of the opinion that it won't sell. Hopefully, my agent will be able to find a home for it. .

"Men may fail in this country, earthquakes may come, seas may heave beyond their bounds, there may be a great drought, disaster, and hardship but this nation, founded on principles laid down by men whom God raised up, will never fail. This is the cradle of humanity, where life on this earth began in the Garden of Eden. This is the place of the new Jerusalem. This is the place that The Lord said is favored above all other nations in all the world. This is the place where the Savior will come to His temple. This is the favored land in all the world. Yes, I repeat, men may fail, but this nation won't fail. Harold B. Lee
