“Courtship and Courage” is my short story addition to this anthology. Witnessing the race riots before the soldiers left for Cuba during the summer of 1898 didn’t stop Claire O’Farrell from opening her heart, but it prevented her from wanting to share it. The stormy Mobile Bay winter proves the right catalyst for Joe Walker to prove his devotion to the woman he loves, though Claire is determined her choices have made her unworthy.
Picking up the winter after Fortitude takes place, those wishing to know what happened to Claire O’Farrell and Joe Walker after the book ended should be pleased with this new adventure. Reading Fortitude first isn’t necessary, but it will make it more enjoyable.
