I’ve fallen in love again. It happens every time, with every story I write. I can’t help it. The characters in my novels are like the best of friends. I’ve figured out why. They’re the kind of people I admire most in the world. They have qualities that shine a light in the darkness. Like my parents. Like my teachers. Like my extended family. Like my best of friends. The everyday heroes who show us the extraordinary in the ordinary as they dig deep and show us how to cut our problems down to size. Every time.
Wyatt Henry is my new favorite.
You fell in love with the Henrys in A Man of Few Words and Hindsight’s 20/20. The journey began with Jackson Henry and continued with his youngest son, Emmett. Now, it’s his oldest son’s turn. Meet Emmett’s big brother, Wyatt.
Wyatt Henry has always been his brother’s keeper. It’s been his job. That, and learning how to be a horse farmer and a man above measure like his father, Jackson Henry—the Henry Way. Emmett made his arrival when Wyatt was two years old, and his kid brother has lit up his world ever since. He’s been the light in the darkness—when his mother died when he was only six, when his father died in a tragic accident on the farm. So what does he do when that light could be snuffed out?
When Emmett jumps in to help a damsel in distress in a barroom fight, he suffers a severe head injury that leaves him blind. It nearly destroys him, taking Wyatt with him. Wyatt has to try and help his brother pick up the pieces. He won’t give up on him, no matter how depressed and angry Emmett is. While he is dealing with Emmett’s challenges, Wyatt will face a life-threatening illness of his own. Through it all, his wife Samantha will be at his side as they work together to take Jackson Henry’s advice and make mountains into molehills.
