Episode 2 of the Heather Gates saga is now online... http://hub.me/alSkn

This 2nd Episode also includes the 2nd of 5 Introduction segments that provide useful background information on the other major characters in the ongoing "The Homeplace Saga" stories. These will be useful for readers who may not have read "Back to the Homeplace" or "The Homeplace Revisited." We also, of course, hope this will encourage readers to go back and actually read these first novels in the Saga series of stories in the 20th Century. Further, these stories set up all of the 19th Century stories that have now been added to the Saga.

Enjoy your reads,
