Mary Jean Kelso

The Westerman family works to overcome the trials of homestead life.

Tom watched Maria as Rigor's crony dragged her from her perch atop the wagon. She clung tightly to the cold metal bar that ran around the seat that was designed to keep the driver and his companion from sliding off.
"Come on," the man tugged her. She kicked at him and clipped him in the chin. He fell to the ground. He had already pulled her past the edge of the seat. Maria was forced to cling to the seat rim and try to pull herself back up onto the top, or lose her grip and fall to the earth beside him.
The man cursed, got to his feet, and came back to grab her ankles and pull her the rest of the way off the wagon. 
Excerpt
A young girl's scream, a baby's wail and a toddler's cry broke the quiet of the countryside near Moriarty, New Mexico. Although unheard by neighbors too distant to help, their voices screeched a heartrending cry.

Their mother lay writhing in pain at their feet.

The Homesteader's Legacy
The Homesteader's Legacy is an incredible story that sparked my interest as soon as I started reading...Mary Jean Kelso creates unforgettable characters that jump from the pages...This book is so astonishing it is like a sponge absorbing the reader's complete attention..She makes her characters believable while making them always a part of the heart.

Reader's Comment
Here's a comment from someone who is blind and has to listen to my books by setting Adobe to read them to her from a download. Anyone with impaired vision can do this and still enjoy the books although not as much as if they could read them as the voice is computer generated, therefore not a truly natural voice. They can be ordered in print as well.


"HI

JUST FINISHED LISTENING TO THE HOMESTEADER'S LEGACY. BOY YOU SURE DON'T HAVE TIME TO GET BORED IN THIS BOOK. IT REALLY MOVES (IF I CAN GET THE COMPUTER TO WORK RIGHT) THINK I ENJOYED THIS ONE THE MOST.
