THE LAW AND MISS MARY
THE LAW AND MISS MARY (4) by Dorothy Clark: 1840: Mary Randolph is glad to be in St. Louis after having had her heart broke in Philadelphia. Her brother, meanwhile, is trying to find out who's been letting the ships fall into disrepair and stealing the profits. Police captain Samuel Benton is on the case, striving to become someone his mother would be proud of. Although Mary and Sam initially are at odds with each other, as they spend time together, tender feelings emerge. Can two people with pain in their hearts discover that with God on their side, words spoken in haste can be forgiven? Clark, an amazing author who uses her life experiences in her stories, creates characters who are like people the reader knows, both good and bad, by actions and words.
