N.E. Brownabout this book: "The Altercation," sixth in the Indignities series.
Trent Matthews, on his death bed, made one last wish: He wanted his wife, Catherine, to move the family back to Galveston for a fresh start.
In this installment of the Galveston, 1900, Indignities Series, Catherine has her three youngest children enrolled in school. Her eldest son, Daniel, has dreamed of becoming a doctor and is pursuing his dream as a med-student in the Galveston Medical School. Her second son, Adam, seeks his independence. He finds a job at the shipping docks and moves to his own apartment. At the moment, Catherine feels that the family will have a bright, prosperous future in Galveston.
However, Catherine's greatest secret - dormant for the past two decades – is in danger of being exposed when an unidentified stranger comes to Galveston. His presence threatens to divide her family. A young man resembling nineteen-year-old Adam creates havoc and Adam bears the scars.
A vulnerable nineteen-year-old girl has been lured into prostitution with promises of a better life. She mysteriously disappears, and because she is Adam's friend, the authorities look to him for answers. Scared and on the run from the law, Adam goes to his birthplace in Beaumont to uncover his mother's darkest secret.
Will the sins of his father become an obsession?
Will he eventually clear his name?
One reviewer says: "If you enjoy reading a well-written book with suspense, historical fiction of Galveston, and more than a touch of romance, you'll enjoy reading this book."
