ABOUT BOOK: Cal, Harlan, and Buddy grow up together in a small Virginiatown in the years before the second World War. United by age, proximity, and temperament, they get into—and out of—all the trouble that boys manage to find. They even earn a nickname from a local restaurateur who gives the boys their first jobs and plenty of friendly advice. “Uncle” Vic calls them the Mulligan’s, because they always seem to find a way through a thicket of trouble—family problems, girls, college, war—to success. Cal and Harlan and Buddy have been blessed with second chances.
Now it’s 1959, and police lieutenant Buddy receives an early-morning phone call: his friend Harlan, a store owner, has been shot in a break-in. Cal, now a preacher, meets Buddy at the hospital, and together, as professionals and as friends, they begin to unravel what might have happened to Harlan.

We listen to Country Gospel, it is a good choice for anyone who was a country fan but is tired of the sexual conitations in love songs. I was raised listening to the Statler Brothers and it brings back many memories for me of those who we attended church iwth as children and as a young teen. I thought it so exciting to learn today that you wrote books... Blessings to you, Linda
