Orris Spencer is an abomination. At least that was what his father said in 1886 before banishing him from their Fifth Avenue mansion and sending him across the continent to Oregon. Now Orris must try to find a place for himself on his brother’s farm. His studies did little to prepare him for pioneer living, and when he’s called on to help protect the livestock from a predator, he’s not at all certain he’s up to the task. Then he meets Henry Bonn, a strange and intriguing man who lives in a cabin in the hills. Orris’s attraction to Henry may not be an abomination—but it may prove to be a greater danger than banishment.

In 1886, Orris Spencer went from living in a mansion on Fifth Avenue in New York to living on a farm in Oregon. The last words Spencer heard from his father as he threw him out was that he was an abomination.

Orris’ brother Samuel agreed to take Orris in and he went from a young man who always had his nose in a book to now helping repair fences and other chores on the farm. Living the high life and now the pioneer life was a huge adjustment for him but he is trying to adjust to it.

When the livestock is being attacked Samuel believes it is being done by coyotes and Orris agrees to take turns watching for the predators at night. He carries a shotgun which he is totally unable to use but hopes that just shooting and making noise will be enough. When he comes face to face with the predators he is surprisingly not afraid, he feels a connection with them and happily agrees to do the night patrol by himself.

When Orris meets Henry Bonn, a neighbor who lives high in the mountains, he has no idea what this meeting will do to change his life. It was wonderful watching Orris adjust to pioneer life while wanting what his brother has someone to love.

A short story with wonderful characters and a look at what life was like in the 1800’s. A story about a young man’s transformation.
