Author's Note

Four of the stories I have posted are less than 100 pages, type-written.  The Lady with the Dark Glasses is less than 30 pages, Beauty and the Fraud and Kendrick run around 60 pages, and The Angel of Mercy is just under 100.  Whitewater and River Bend are both full-length novels, and Return to River Bend will also be longer.

Of the four "shorter" stories, I personally think this is the best one.  The characters are good, and there is an underlying moral theme that the others do not have.  There are a few fairly tense places that I think enhance the story as well.  I hope you enjoy it.

I do know one thing, though.  Dear reader, you will love "the angel of mercy" in this story.  Everybody loves Missy...
