False Fathers (Waxwood Series: Book 2)

Amazon Barnes & Noble iTunes Kobo

Who will be false and who will be true?

At the age of nineteen, Jake loses his grandfather, the only father figure he ever knew. Two years later, he is expected to take his place as head of the family and the next generation of shipping tycoons. But Jake has none of the qualities that make a successful Gilded Age man. He is contemplative when he should be aggressive, hesitant when he should be ambitious, and artistic when he should be money-driven. And now he has no paternal figure to guide him. 

Spending the summer in Waxwood, a small coastal town turned into a luxurious resort for Nob Hill’s elite, Jake finds no shortage of male role models. From the rambunctious Roger Howe and his college friends to the dangerous and elusive Harland Stevens, all are eager to show him how to become the man his grandfather wanted him to be.

Who will prove to be the true guide and who the wolf in sheep’s clothing?

Book 2 of the Waxwood Series is a touching coming-of-age story set in the last unsettling years of America’s nineteenth century.
