Where an Angel's On a Rope: A Milford-Haven Holiday Novelette
Can an intuition save a man's life? Astronomer and competent mountain climber Cornelius Smith depends upon his intelligence for both his career and his hobby. Never before has he faced a situation where logical steps couldn't be followed to an inevitable conclusion. Yet even he couldn't possibly have imagined or predicted his experience in the Angeles Crest National Forest high above Los Angeles. Out for a pleasant hike on a warm Southern California day with a bare minimum of equipment he isn't prepared physically or mentally for his sudden challenge, nor for the intuition that seems to insist he make an illogical choice - or die clinging to a rock face. Can a man with apparently no way back up, and no way down - find an unexpected means of his own rescue seems to have been placed there for him ahead of time? How can he explain the persistent image of a tiny angel that seems to hover over him on the mountain? And what will he do with the illogical intuition that won't leave him alone? Though the e-book stands alone, it also extends the Milford-Haven Novels, the critically acclaimed, best-selling series, a multi-generational saga. Based on Purl's BBC Radio drama Milford-Haven U.S.A.
