Without her body, she can’t do anything to stop them.

When robberies crop up all over town, the Tweaks put their genetically enhanced abilities to work to catch the crooks.

That Tender Light (An Owen Family Novella)
Marsha Ward
$0.99 Kindle | NOOK | Kobo | Apple iBooks | Smashwords 

How did the Owen Family Saga begin?

With a love story, of course, the most romantic love story of all: when Rod and Julia met.

God must have conspired with the angels to put Roderick Owen of Shenandoah County, Virginia, and Julia Helm, of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, in the same place on one magical day in Spring, 1840. All nature paused, as though holding its breath, waiting to see what would happen.

In this short novella, acclaimed author Marsha Ward tells the story of the Owen Family origins, describing in her delicate language the tender feelings of two people who need to find each other in a very small window of time.
