one eyed jacks by bob cherry author

 
 
"...Cherry’s brilliant knowing dialogue teases the reader along in a journey into
the unfathomable human heart and the universal mystery of the hidden side of a One Eyed Jack."
—Charlotte Hinger
 

A riveting novel that spans four decades
in the lives of a group of raucous Texans in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Charismatic Phineas Farrow enters the dreary lives of Marvin G. Crush and the wealthy local widow, Stella Villard. Marvin has long felt a deep but unrequited love for Stella, but unknown to Marvin, she now seems to be drawn to Phineas instead. The three finally agree to join in an outrageous scheme to bring wealth to their dying little railroad community in far West Texas. But because of deception, and utter failure, some of the characters are propelled beyond the community into a wilderness which tests their mettle, in a struggle for survival itself.

Clayton had promised his wife on her deathbed that he would bury their daughter next to her in the town cemetery. As he wrestles with grief and the difficult chore of moving his daughter, he is torn between his promise to his deceased wife and the vehement opposition of his lifelong friends to the drilling, which will be triggered by moving Serafina's remains.
