Letty Schultz and her four
young children are physically and verbally abused by husband,
Rudolf Schultz. When Letty finally fights back, she thinks
she has killed him by hitting him on the head with an iron
skillet. Letty flees with the children so she won’t
go to prison and leave the children with Rudolf. They go
down the Rock River and across Lake Koshkonong. She wonders
what lies beyond the Rock River, on her way to her brother
Widower David Whitfield loses interest in
his law practice in Wisconsin. He would rather raise horses.
He agrees to help a deputy take a prisoner to Omaha. He
decides to continue on to Colorado to visit his best friend,
Letty's brother, Ed Winthrop.
Letty and David remember a time in their
youth when they had planned a life together, and now they
looked forward to doing that. And when irate husband Rudolf
arrives in Colorado, Letty is prepared both mentally and
physically. She also has divorce papers.
Sometimes we feel trapped
in our own lives, and finding the courage to change that
life is the challenge. For Letty Schultz, the heroine of
BEYOND THE ROCK, an abusive marriage and the safety of her
children lead to an exciting, incredible adventure in the
Wild West, with life-changing results. Letty’s journey
within herself, and her struggle to win true love, is even
more interesting, and why BEYOND THE ROCK by author Alice
Blue is awarded my Publisher’s Pick for Writing Excellence
for July 2006.
