Rivers Crossing

The flash of jagged lightning ejected Spooner Hays as it streaked the dark, wet sky.  His long, lithe form fell from the courthouse roof like an unworthy sacrifice refused by an angry storm god.  Spooner’s normal strength and agility failed him as he grabbed for a handhold on the mossy ledge.  The courthouse oak tree seemed to rise up out of the black dirt to gather him in its arms.  Ribs cracked as the first limb greeted him, sending sharp slivers of bone into a lung.  The tree’s limbs and leaves swayed with each wind gust, making Spooner appear to fall in slow motion.

Rivers Crossing is the first book I’ve read by Jim Ainsworth.  I’m looking forward to reading more of his books.  Biscuits Across the Brazos is an interesting title!
