John Martin had nowhere left to go. His music career was in the toilet and his trouble with drink had caused him trouble with the law. With nothing in the world but his van and guitar he headed back to his hometown in West Virginia. John hoped to find a place where he could get himself sorted out, but the town and family he left behind more than a decade before were in pretty bad shape, too. And there was no one left to hold it together but John. The Fourteenth Colony is a novel that explores possibility, failure and the hope for redemption. It's a novel that asks can old hurt be soothed, can old wrongs be righted, and can we forgive and start again? With this purchase, you are entitled to a download of the companion album.
