Desperadoes and derring-doAuthor Dorothy Garlock brings alive the 1930s era which tested the mettle of our mothers and grandmothers in With Song. At first, Molly McKenzie is unaware that she witnessed the getaway of the men who gunned down her parents in their small Kansas store. Desperate to see the men brought to justice, she courageously agrees to publicize her eyewitness descriptions of the desperadoes. For federal agent Hod Dolan, this means two dangerous challenges: catching the bad guys and protecting Molly. As Hod takes up surveillance at Molly's home, the two discover there is no protection against the love building between them. Garlock writes with an uncanny ear for the nuances of this era, and bravo to her for bringing forth this uplifting love story from a dark and dusty time.
