Here is a short excerpt from my book Next Stop. You can find a link to the book’s Amazon or Barnes and Noble page here.
I’m in Gold Creek, living with a kind young lady named Mrs. Clapps. She is boarding me for very little. I am very well taken care of by her. I have a job and have sent along the first amount of money I received, after I took out the rent for Mrs. Clapps. It should be enough to pay for Gretel’s school fee, and a bit more for anything you find you need.
Write me often, Mrs. Clapps will read the letters. Tell me if you hear from Father.
I miss you all. Do not fret about me. Mrs. Clapps is God fearing.
With Much Love,
