Narrow Lives

Reader Views - First Place Historical Fiction - 2009The story of Lysander Blackmore, the sinister banker in The Queen City.  Focusing on minor characters from Mr. Tichelaar’s Marquette Trilogy, these characters speak in their own voices, giving them greater personal depth and providing multiple perspectives. 

The novel explores the influence one person has, even in death, upon others, and it explores the prisons of grief, loneliness, and fear self-created by people when they doubt their own worthiness.
