Ormand City-Golden Hour
It’s 1945. FDR is at the helm and World War II intensifies while a crisis just as important exists in the mind’s eye of ten-year-old, Trav Teller: territorial rights over Ormand City’s hangout, The Cut.
Disheartened by the loss of his mom, Trav escapes his sorrows by visiting his newfound playground in the high cliff walls of Stonewall Pass. His adventures however are short lived when, town bully, Riley McAllister and his toady, Mitch Escott, demand Trav stay away from their hangout.
Stubborn as the day is long, Trav defies each of Riley’s warning’s. But trouble brews with every trip, until Riley makes a threat Trav cannot ignore, one involving his best friend. Trav may never fill the void left behind by the loss of his mom but should the town bully get his way, he would earn himself a lifetime of guilt.
A precocious twelve-year-old named Saundra Woodlen, a time capsule and The Old Cottonwood, patch together the unmistakable journey known as childhood.
