What Price Eden

by Dean Minnich

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

Ellen returns to her hometown seeking the legacy of her mother's land. Jim Parks is running short on options and has returned to sell his family legacy -- a failing newspaper. Their paths cross when they run up against corrupt men who see money and power as the fruits of this one-time Eden, and they're willing to ruin reputations -- or even kill someone -- to keep that power.


Ellen Brubeck is looking for the legacy of a childhood memory, following up on something her father told her years ago. Now her father is missing, and she finds herself being followed. Jim Parks has come back to town just long enough to sell his family legacy to the highest bidder and try to start his life over --  perhaps with an older woman and former lover. They become unlikely and contentious allies, joined by a law officer who tries to keep order between the old guard and newcomers in a county some think of as a new Eden.
