The Renewal
by Mike Torreano

Ike McAlister has finally put the ghosts of his past to rest. He’s found new joy with a spirited wife, a young daughter, and a mountain valley ranch where a man can make something of himself. But a coming railroad through the South Park valley threatens to take his land and tear his hard-won peace apart. Discovering that the railroad could easily bypass his ranch, he organizes opposition and earns the animus of the formidable foreman. When Ike’s brother Rob, the sheriff, is bushwhacked, Ike sets out on a high stakes quest to get the killer before the killer gets him.



Mike Torreano's Bio

My love affair with the written word began in grade school, when my fifth grade teacher made us read a book and write a book report each week of the school year. I devoured every Zane Grey book I could get my hands on that year, sparking a lifelong love for the American West of the 19th century. Finally, I'm a student of the Civil War, and have written the first of what I suspect will be several novels centered on that agonizing, but captivating period.
