Amelia Island's Golden Years, Silver Tears

The long awaited second book in the Amelia Secret's trilogy has arrived!


The Story takes up where "Amelia's Secrets" left off; after the murder trial held in Jacksonville, Florida where the accused, great-great-grandson of President Thomas Jefferson, T. J. Eppes murderer of one of his best friends and father of six children walks out of the courtroom a free man.

He returns to Amelia Island there to carry on life as usual with his beautiful young bride Katie, expecting their first child, only to find life for her to be a daily trial by a jury of her peers; an impossible situation in the end.

Our protagonist John Whitner describes in detail not only their lives culminating in the great hurricane of 1898, which nearly devistates the island but through the lives of the Carnegies of Cumberland Island, Mrs. Leddy owner and operator of the Florida House Hotel and her only child Grace from age eight through her progression to adulthood, marriage, babies and widowhood at the young age of twenty one.

John, himself reveals his journey though all this, his relationship with Pauline; its ups and downs, a new woman in his life (or women) as well as his passion for photography in the many places he visits, Jekyll Island, Charleston S.C. during the earthquake and Chicago's World's Fair of 1893.

Amelia's Secrets
