A Star-Spangled Homecoming
When Star Taylor returns home to Alpine, Texas to finish her degree at McDonald Observatory, the last thing she expects is to run into her high school boyfriend, Bart Hays. The man is a widower with a five-year-old son. Will romance win this time? Or will the circumstances of today drown out their growing love? The story was born out of an experience I had with my roommate in college. When we went to visit her home, we went through Alpine and she showed me the observatory. This became the setting for the story.
