A stately mansion sits atop the crest of Hummingbird Hill on the outskirts of Big Spring, Texas. This is the tale of that mansion and the trials and tribulations experienced by its inhabitants over the years, as it goes from the family home of James "Buck" Henderson and his wife, June, to one of the South's most elegant "sporting" houses, to a home for runaways, and finally, a family home again. It is a tale of love, hate, rape, incest, murder, and intrigue.
The story begins with Buck Henderson's early years in Philadelphia, to his heroism during World War I, his battlefield promotions and medals for bravery, including the Congressional Medal of Honor, his recovery in a Denver hospital, and his marriage to June.
After securing an engineering degree at Penn State, Buck and June set out for Big Spring, Texas, where they find success in the oil field supply business and raise a family, but their happiness is followed by rape, murder, and the sale of their beloved mansion.
About the Author:
This is the third effort by this songwriter turned novelist. After retiring from his position as president and CEO of a seven state insurance agency, he took up songwriting as his next career challenge, and has written over two hundred songs. One of those songs entitled 'The House Of Fallen Angels' was recorded in 1998 by the youngest female artist ever signed to a major label recording contract. That song became the inspiration for this novel. This songwriter/author has now, once again, retired from the frenetic life of the music industry to live the quiet life with his wife Maelene in the serenity of The Woodlands, TX with their four cats and one pet raccoon.
