Early 1900s Anglo-Saxon society redirects Angela's life. A struggling poor soul, she strives toward a near impossible dream on the land of her murdered father. With manifesting unconditional love, relentless Moonshiner battles until bloody during harrowing encounters when the huge silver-haired alpha avenges his family, defends Angela's land, saves her, her home, and the granddaughter to whom Angela leaves a great legacy.Her story begins with looking for ways to put food on the table for herself and two teenage sons who reach maturity and opt to move away in search of work. One night as she carries a heavy load of bottles across the rough Texas terrain, a pack of wolves viciously attack her. Surprisingly, the alpha male comes to her rescue. Could he be the defenseless, stray pup befriended years earlier by Angela and her sons? For decades the relationship between Angela and Moonshiner deepens, and at times grim realities combine with spirits and absolute, endless devotion.EXCERPT: "Tension grows each time Angela abruptly turns, suspiciously observing the pup's obedience. She kneels next to him. With quick fingers, she rigidly points toward him, taps his nose, raises her forefinger to her lips and whispers, 'Not a sound my little one, for we'll continue like silent stalkers.' He remains quiet, unafraid, unlike before. On this trip he studies her every move with his bright, intelligent eyes, eyes she believes in. From the kneeling position, she takes sure aim, and after a quick release of the arrow, it thumps into the buck. From this moment, the pup learns to step toward fallen prey to lick dribbling, tasty fluid. Angela pulls her filleting knife and with a strong stomach plunges the knife in and field dresses the deer, packing only delectable sections into the knapsack. By the time she completes the task, the pup has had his fill of meat. Weighed down with back quiver, bow, lantern, water, and sack stuffed with deer, all over her shoulder, she bends down to lift the bloody-snouted pup above her head, wriggling him as one would a child. And so, without objection, he allows her to cradle him during the two miles back to the cabin while he dotes on cuddling and whispers of love."
