by Dr. Ric Hooban
This historical novel is based on evidence Dr. Ric Hooban obtained while trying to prove or disprove the existence of a pen that could be the Whalley pen with the king’s blood on it.
The novel’s storyline switches from past to present and back to past history in revealing whether there could actually have been such a pen tied to one of New England’s greatest mysteries.
Ric used many historical sources, including the U.S.A. Census, which began in 1790 and was a great move on the part of the U.S.A. in its early stages.
Now sit back and enjoy this true story.
