A peek at the pages…and a call for quotes!

Laura Frantz Uncategorized

One of my favorite things about The Ballantyne Legacy series has been the quotes or epigrams at the start of each chapter. They foreshadow what is to come or hint about the action to unfold.

Greetings from Port Angeles, Washington:) A far cry from Kentucky! A heavenly spot to have some Chai tea and my favorite bacon and bleu sandwich with a side of harvest slaw:) …
