Hot off the Press

Marianos ChoiceIn David Jessup's Mariano's Choice, young Mariano Medina witnesses a vicious attack on a girl he adores and flees in inexplicable terror. Fifteen years later, as a grown man training horses along the Oregon Trail, he has a chance to redeem himself if he can overcome his cowardly urge to flee. His choice will lead Medina back to the land of his childhood, where he must confront his darkest fears and uncover the hidden source of his panic in the ghostly stare that haunts his dreams. David is hosting a book launch on October 1! Click here for details. Available on Amazon. See more member books in our library
