Florida Book Festival Honorable Mention Best General Fiction

Tom Kenny's life was forever changed when he witnessed a murder he cannot remember. To complicate matters, he also is privy to the location of the legendary lost gold payroll from General Braddock's campaign during the French and Indian War. Dogged by a mysterious "Voice" who is willing to stop at nothing to find out the location of Braddock's gold, Tom embarks on a personal journey in book three of the Braddock's Gold series, Fool's Wisdom.

Everyone asks "Why does evil prosper? Why do good people suffer? Tom Kenney, a Vietnam Veteran still dealing with PTSD issues, is no exception. Aspects of his life seem out of control and make no sense, but Tom has his faith and through it, he finds his answers. Some of them he does not understand. Nevertheless, he learns to trust and carry on, even if it could cost him his life..

What People Say

I absolutely love the story line in Hunter's Moon along with the first book in this series Braddock's Gold. Both books are very hard to put down, they are interesting from start to finish. The story line about Tom, his family, his beliefs, his job, and his connection to the gold will keep and hold the interest of many different types of readers. I would strongly recommend this book to history buffs or anyone who loves a good book. You will not be disappointed. I cannot wait till the next book comes out! —Marsha Tressler, educator, lover of history and great books, and homemaker

Braddock's Gold...Hunter's Moon...the hits keep coming! American history interwoven with a geography lesson near and about the Mason-Dixon Line, this novel is a comfort read. I will recommend this book to all who are looking for an intriguing novel to read, yet do not want it laced with repulsive, foul language. Yet...also do not want a "goody-goody," "un-real" all to common narrative that has nothing to do with real life. This book has characters with "character" placed in a believable setting that is easy to relate to. Enjoy!—Dr. Stanley E. Toompas, Optometrist & Author of, I'm the One the Other Isn't
