THE BLASTED SERIES (Book #1)
When THEN turns into NOW, you are in a BLASTED PAST
Jim Nagle was beset with more problems than any 54-year old investment executive could handle. His ex-wife had her lawyers on him, his estranged son was in jail, and the California State Franchise Board was chasing him for back taxes. It seemed that everyone was against him. The topper of it all was that his business was growing so fast he was mismanaging it.
Then, in a single moment of a heartbeat his life was changed forever. A freak accident thrust Nagle back 145 years in time. Could this be real? Did this really happen? Is it even possible? Time had just been ripped away from him and Nagle finds himself stranded in a small post-Civil War Texas town.
He couldn’t deny reality standing on the dusty streets of this frontier village. The town was populated with gunfighters, drifters, hostile Indians and prostitutes sprinkled among the solid German immigrant citizens that founded it. Nagle came to believe that only God could have brought him to this place. A life-long Catholic, Nagle had slipped from grace with the Church over the years. His being here could not have been an accident but a part of God’s plan. Nagle’s renewed faith convinces him that his Maker wants him in 1872 for a reason. But what is that purpose? Was he sent here to change history? What was significant about being put in this place at this time in antiquity?
And while he waited for understanding of his circumstances, he needed to develop new coping skills to exist in this primitive environment. The modern contrivances he always relied on hadn’t been invented yet. This was a whole new ballgame. In fact, as he soon discovered, he would need some specialized skills pretty darn quick—just to stay alive.
