The magic of alternate histories and books set in Washington

Our sponsor Julie Manthey was camping at Cape Disappointment when she came up with the idea for her first novel, The Magic of Cape Disappointment. The history of Lewis & Clark permeats the Columbia River outlet, and there are so many things unknown in the accounts of their history.

One fictional spark: what if Meriwether Lewis had children? What would happen if one his descendents, Kay, returned home to care for family, and discovered strange coincidences, unique characters, and, of course, a man that bears a resemblence to a mysterious character Kay had been painting? Read the first full chapter from The Magic of Cape Disappointment on our sponsor's page.
