Publisher's Summary

A 2010 Finalist in the Popular Fiction category of the National Indie Excellence Book Awards.

From Publisher's Weekly: Set in 1967 East Texas, this novel mixes a soupçon of the supernatural in with the mundane. Twenty-year old Paul Henry, just released from the Army physically healed from wounds he suffered in Vietnam, but still suffering from deep psychic wounds and a radically changed outlook.

Estranged from family and friends and not knowing what he's going to do with the rest of his life, decides to visit the grave of his father, a man he never knew who supposedly committed suicide on the day his son was born. Paul's impulsive decision to find out more about his father sets him on a journey among strangers in a strange land, where he will find happiness and horror, love, hate, the power of determined effort, and the force of capricious fate.

The author does an excellent job of keeping you enthralled, making you hope all will be well, yet causing you to fear that all will come crashing down. Like a skilled poker player, this story keeps its cards close to its vest until all the bets are in. The hand is called, and boom, the cards are laid on the table for all to see. After the emotions stirred up by the showdown abate, one thought is left. Wow! Deal another hand!

    "Worth the read if you love a good laugh and cry"
    Would you listen to The Baron of Clayhill again? Why?

    I would love to listen to The Baron of Clayhill again because it made me laugh and cry and it was overall an excellent book and very well written.


    What other book might you compare The Baron of Clayhill to and why?

    I don't think I can compare any book to The Baron of Clayhill because I've never read one quite like this one before.


    What does Rich Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved the way Rich narrates, unlike a lot of other narrators, Rich was not boring and definitely did not have an annoying voice. I find myself not purchasing books because the narration doesn't fit the character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved in a lot of moments in the book. I was moved most though by Paul's never ending generosity to his best friend and the people of Clayhill. I was particularly moved but in a sad way with the tragic ending. I had hoped for a different ending, but overall, it couldn't have ended any different.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Baron of Clayhill. John is a very intelligent author who knows how to grip the reader and keep them wanting more until the very end. Thumbs up John!
