When his wife left him, Sam Martin decided that New York was too crowded and full of bad memories, so he decided to move out west. He bought a huge but inexpensive farm, near a small town called Gateway in Wyoming. Gateway was not on any map, so he knew that he would find the solitude that he desperately needed. Upon his arrival, he noted that the small town was stuck in the 1930’s, not to mention a few other quirks that mystified him. Coming from a farming background, he relished the opportunity to sow his own fields and live an uncomplicated farm life for the rest of his days.
A strange black rock jutted out from the middle of the field. It had writing upon it, so he thought that it might be a strange monument to a past farmer of these fields. One night, while admiring the splendor of what he’d accomplished the previous day, he noticed people hovering around the black rock. They stood upon it and then vanished within it. He ran to the rock, but no one was there. Many other oddities occurred to Sam—the town didn’t have a cemetery; there were no modern appliances, modern cars or electricity. Sam navigates these mysteries to find the answers he needs and to determine, whether or not, he owned the Gateway to heaven or hell.
INTRICATELY THOUGHT OUT
I thought this would be a regular read about a man named Sam,who seeks a quite life for himself out west after a bad marriage turns horribly wrong. But alas what we see cannot always be believed. Sam loves his farm and the new town he has moved into. The town welcomes him with open arms, he falls in love with Loryn, but all too soon things turn tumultuous. Without spoiling this story for all you readers I will tell you this…the book will take you through a gambit of emotions, have you on the edge of your seat and even have you questioning your own sanity. Really!!! The cast of characters in this book will make your head ping back and forth like a tennis match. I have never read such an in depth story, nor one so unbelievably believable if that is conceivable? You will see what I mean soon. Gary D. Henry has really pulled out all the stops in this one. Beautifully created, handsomely edited and intricately thought out. Mysterious, paranormal aspects, reminds me of many movies I have seen all thrown into a well written piece of literary work. Kudos!
