H. F. Beaumont’s newest novel digs deep into one’s emotions. The chief’s teenaged daughter falls in love with a local non-tribal residence named Jameson Brown. This relationship was frowned upon by not only the tribe but the local community outside of the reservation. Morning Dove became pregnant, looked down on by the tribe for violating tribal laws, while the non-tribal boyfriend was forbidden to see Morning Dove.
Years later, Jameson Brown returns to the community adjacent to the reservation and frequented the local drug store soda fountain. He was not aware that Hayward Brown was his son who was the one making the malts, shakes, sundaes, and banana splits behind the counter for customers.
During a brush-clearing operation just west of the Stockdale residence, the earthmoving machinery unearthed a human skeleton. The police were called to the job site. This led to a criminal investigation. Buckle up your seatbelts, for one suspenseful ride.
