Another Gold Star Question?

Updated: Oct 5, 2019

Here is a two ⭐️⭐️ GOLD STAR question. One of the main characters in my novel, "Tares among the Wheat" is young widow, Amelia Meade. Although my novel is not yet released, the answer to this question can be found in my postings on Facebook, Twitter, and/or my website. THE QUESTION: Amelia suffers three personal tragedies in her lifetime, as disclosed in the novel. What were those three specific tragedies? 🧐🥴🤔

Although the subjects in the photo are not identified, and my research failed, I am certain the woman on the left is my mother. I was fortunate to have such background and ancestry as resources for my novel, "Tares among the Wheat" to be released by late November, 2019.

History and action combined in the story of the greatest US Marshal in Indian Territory and possibly the greatest to ever serve.

A positive remark speaks volumes. I would like to ask a special favor. My new historical nonfiction book is coming out soon and I'm looking for blurb endorsements and reviews. The books focus on using the social history of the times to understand what your ancestors were thinking and feeling.

The first of two volumes. THE FIRST HUNDRED YEARS IN AMERICA chronicles the Presidents, the Federal Census, and current events that influenced the lives of our ancestors from 1790 to 189...


📷Julia Reagan Harmon They sound great!Hide or report thisLike · Reply · 1d📷Mark Jones Congratulations. I know you’ve worked very hard getting to this point.
