About the Book
Life is good for highly acclaimed Justice Oliver Browning, well… life is tolerable… until it’s horrible. He’s invited by a colleague to make some “easy” money. However, it’s more illegal than easy, and after being rebuffed when Browning tries to convince his buddy to turn himself in to the authorities, the justice knocks on the FBI’s door.
Thus, begins a new life of sorts as he enters the Witness Protection Program and is moved to a small mining town in Colorado. Surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the area, Browning settles in as “Larry Fields” and faces a long list of WITSEC rules designed to keep him safe from the drug cartel he’s angered by exposing their money-laundering scheme.
Since his disinterested and distant wife refuses to join him in this “embarrassing” situation, he’s on his own and soon meets the lovely owner of the local bookstore. But being unable to share his true identity and marital status, their gentle romance begins on very shaky ground. Even so, “Larry” gets a glimpse of how spectacular his life could be when and if his current troubles are resolved.
“I Am a Part of All that I Have Met”: A Story of Greed, Love, and Inspiration shows that when love is strong, it can grow, in spite of adversity.
