Love and marriage began for Barton and Elise Barre in the oil fields of Texas. Bart's innovative drill designs, financial backing from friends, and a hearty appetite for making money, the Barre Oil Drilling Engineering (BODE) office has now moved to Austin Texas. With his beautiful and talented wife, Elise, Bart is fast gaining his dream to be a wealthy oil baron.


Elise keeps everything running like a well-oiled machine, as a wife, mother and business partner in BODE. This keeps Bart happy and his happiness is hers. Together, they often have times of intense love and a good partnership. As Bart's lucky star, Elise helps to build his dream.


During the days which seem wonderful, enters the fateful snake creeping into their idyllic garden of bliss. Perhaps it is the La Barre family curse wreaking havoc with friends, family and their business partners. Barton and Elise are at odds for a time which begins the tragedy of the summer of 1950. Each one tries to find the magical momentum they had before everything fell apart.


This is part one of the fourth book in the multi-generational La Barre family saga, Sparrow Wars in the Garden of Bliss. 

Adult themes and language.
