Eighteen-year-old cabinetmaker apprentice Thomas Sullivan chafes at the realization his bookseller father cast him aside. Never one to lead, Thomas must come to grips with circumstances that dictate asserting himself. Disease, superstition, murder and treasure overtake the lives of the Shaffer family with whom he resides. Fear of the dreaded white plague, consumption, casts a long shadow over northeastern Connecticut in 1837. Worse——in the absence of science, superstitions become the anticipated cures for a dreaded disease…and keeping the dead from rising. Kindle ebook FREE Sept. 18-20, 2020!

Born into an immigrant family, Max Willi Fischer was raised in a village named after an exotic North African seaport—Mogadore, Ohio. With that type of background, no wonder he grew up with an innate love of history. A four-decade teaching career convinced him that history should be a vibrant, well told story, not the dry sawdust of textbooks.
Retired, Max lives with his wife and trusted four-legged companions Cooper, Lucy, and Izzy.
