Things of the Earth-Part II (Book 4-II)
It is 1954 and Barton Barre has not only survived WWII, but also came home a hero, thanks to his family's lucky phoenix medallion. However, for this man of action, fortune is as fickle as his heart. Now as he works hard to build his Texas oil empire, he must also keep his beautiful wife, Elise, and their son, Francis content. Unfortunately, for Barton this is a challenge, for temptation, greed and lust influence his every move.
Elise is a devoted mother and business partner who faithfully follows Barton despite his callousness and lies. She knows his soul and believes he is the beast that only her love can tame and hold.
Francis, a resilient and talented boy has learned early that when it comes to his father, he comes last. As he matures, strives for personal perfection, and exceeds his parents' expectations, Francis still manages to fall into the shadow of their demanding lives. As temptation knocks on his own door, life leads Francis down a new path where every decision comes with consequences and he ponders if he too is a victim of the dreaded La Barre family curse.
In this continuing mult-generational tale, fate and luck plays havoc with the Barre family, during the post-WWII era in Texas. Love for the Barres is the only key to true bliss.
Sexual and adult themes and language.
