About Man On The Fence Hardcover Book
The Man On The Fence Hardcover Book is a nostalgic journey of boyhood friends as they grow into men, husbands, and fathers until life’s twists and turns create a rift that has the potential to turn deadly. Their relationships for better or worse with the spirited women in their lives create an equally heart-wrenching and heart-warming tale of family, friends, and farm life in which the characters are shaped by the typical trials of adulthood: sex, religion, politics, and death. The story is set in southeastern Michigan and includes lots of Michigan landmarks and events.
Congressman Tate Daniels had second-guessed almost every decision he’d ever made – with good reason. All he wanted out of life was to play for his beloved Detroit Tigers, take over the family farm, and settle down with the girl of his dreams. Funny how life works out. To make matters worse, Tate had managed to alienate friends that he’d known since their first Little League game back in 1965. Perhaps it would be better to believe in fate than to take responsibility for his current position. One thing Tate now knows for certain – as he lie on the floor with a bullet in his chest – this isn’t right.
