A dynamic and ambitious mayor gathers his closest advisors for a fishing trip at the Outer Banks. There they will plan his campaign for governor. Mayor Brandsgard is smart and charming, a homegrown boy from Davenport, Iowa who appears destined for greatness. Joining him are his privileged wife, his attorney, the shrewd political pro who serves as his chief of staff, his brilliant policy wonk and Cutter, his quixotic wordsmith and confidante. They bring with them all the skills and audacity needed to take their mayor to the statehouse...and beyond. They also bring individual baggage--baggage which will impact their collective future. Especially Cutter's. In his captivating debut work, J. Woodburn Barney unites his readers with the human experience--with their own experience--by drawing attention to the percussion of everyday life. Written by someone who has lived a lifetime observing, its pages are filled with revealing internal dialogue, vulnerable human connections and the type of twists life throws at you. With his skilled character development and authentic depiction of human interaction, he creates a familiar and fascinating illustration of the impact that life can have on life. Ultimately, Barney let this story "be whatever it wanted to be." Author_Bio: J. Woodburn Barney lives in Fort Myers with his wife, who is his best friend, favorite traveling companion and muse. He has spent his most rewarding days with his children and family; on Hatteras Island; at a golf course; or at a bar having beer and oysters.
