No Place to Hide
By: Ed Higdon
About the Book
Most people would have written off Richard Barton, a convicted barn burner recently released from a stint in the state pen. But most people also would have written off the Martin family after an accident confined James to his bed and left the family unable to pay the note on their farm held by a ruthless local businessman. Fate brought the two lost causes together, and it would be up to them to turn their fortunes around.
With an unwavering faith in God and their own work ethic, Richard and the Martins set out on a bold, new path together, seeking to turn the farm around and earn fresh starts. Will they succeed and survive as one big, happy family, or will the ghosts of Richard's checkered past eventually catch up with him?
