Today is the anniversary of a very tragic time in US history. Like all other atrocities, rather than relive them, today I chose to say a small prayer for those seeking comfort of the bad memories and ask that I be used as an instrument to continue to do good things in a world so divided. If you are one who is mourning a loss today, I send you a virtual hug, but life is for the living, so let's celebrate the moment. :)
Living is what Odessa wanted to continue to do in her story. When her father dies beneath the crushing weight of their over-turned wagon, her determination drives her to find a way out of the desert and back to civilization. Sometimes, even when you set your mind to something, it doesn't always work and a little divine intervention works wonders.
Enter Zach Johnson, a would-be outlaw, who is wrestling with his conscience. I could give away the story when hero and heroine travel together, but you'll have to read to find out what happens when Zach meets up with the leader of a gang determined to lighten the load of a wage-bearing stagecoach and a trusted companion who helps him find Odessa when she is carted away by grudge-bearing gunslinger. Things aren't always as they seem.
Thanks for continuing to come back to Dishin' It Out, and now that I'm in and settled once again, perhaps I can get back to the pleasure of writing and blogging. In the meantime I'm waiting for the bills to start pouring in from the tag-team of doctors who visited me in the hospital. Thank God for health insurance and please...keep Obamacare from my doorstep. Oops...that was political, wasn't it. Sorry. :)
Oh, next Sunday, I'll be back to Six Sentence Sunday which I've missed because I get to share such great tidbits from others. I almost forgot to add that Odessa is offered by Eternal Press and on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com plus a myriad of other places on the Web.
