JB Gatling is a former high-level business executive who spent his career in New York City, Los Angeles, and Boston. He retired at a relatively young age several years ago and was determined back then to write an enduring story that was uniquely American in scope and vision. In this, his first novel, he has captured the irrepressible will and resiliency of ordinary people who overcame hardship and tragedy across the generations. They journeyed beyond borders and boundaries. JB lives and writes in South Florida along with his wife and his dog, LB.
