Tom Sawyer Returns: The New Adventures (Paperback)
August 1864 -- The once-peaceful Mississippi River town where Becky Thatcher grew up is a hotbed for sedition. When suspicion falls on her upright father, the last person she needs help from is a man she can't trust.
Her former beau Tom Sawyer has been gone for years. Now suddenly, he shows up at her doorstep, injured and missing crucial memories. He pledges to help her vindicate the judge, but he can't-or won't-answer Becky's questions. In fact, Tom's involvement doesn't improve matters, and he shows a disturbing penchant for attracting enemies.
Despite her efforts to resist Tom's questionable assistance, Becky is drawn into a web of intrigue involving her disloyal cousin, Tom's relentless brother, and a childhood friend who offers her security in return for her hand in marriage.
When her father faces almost certain execution and her own life is at stake, who can she rely on?
Inspired by America's favorite storyteller, E.E. Burke brings her vision to a historical novel featuring a cast of unforgettable characters from Mark Twain's classics. If you enjoy a period page-turner with a warm and witty romance, don't miss Tom Sawyer Returns.
