Last week I gave you a sneak peek of the first chapter of The Blue Moon Narthex. If you haven’t read it yet, you can find it here! We left Cole in the smoky aftermath of a train derailment….
Cole’s father, Richard McCarthy, ran a railroad, and trains play a big part in Cole’s adventures. The early 1900’s had been the heyday of the American railroad. New lines had been built to move people and goods around the country. But rising operating costs, government price controls, and tension between railroad companies and unions made the years prior to World War I stressful for railroad executives.
Would you like to know what happened to Richard and Cole in the derailment? You can access the second chapter at the link below!
