The Real Hero of Canton

By HarrietH2O

Scifi / Romance

Chapter 1

Fess Higgins remembered.

When he stood up to his father for the first time - he remembered. When his father died and he became Magistrate - he remembered. As he slowly started to loosen the rules making the mudders’ lives hell - he remembered. When the first Mudders’ Unions were set up, and the decrees for fair pay were passed, and the harsh punishments were lifted -

He remembered.

Whenever he let his conscience win over his obedience to his father, he remembered how she’d nurtured him. Whenever one of the workers thanked him, tears in their eyes, for the improvements he had made to their lives, he remembered that it was her who had made him what he was today.

He looked with his mind’s eye at how the town had been before, and he remembered.

He looked at how the town was now - thriving and happy - with the mudders producing more clay now than ever, and he never forgot.

Whenever he walked past the statue of Jayne Cobb in the town square, he remembered who the real hero of Canton was. He remembered how her words had changed him; how she’d shown him that he was his own person. How she’d taught him to make his own choices.

The real hero of Canton.

The woman who had taught him to be a man.

Readingnerdy: I love how this story is different from the cliche of rich guy and a girl. Sure, there is still super rich people involved but this plot is just refreshing. Awesome job, i am looking forward to read the sequel. Thank you...

marielm05: I fell in love with this story; it’s characters, the way is written... it is just wonderful

marielm05: Despite the controversy and the taboo in which the plot finds it bases, I can only describe this as sensuous romance filled with chaos and misunderstandings ; a story that makes it readers question the limitations of love.

Kailey Floyd: Great book though. you never knew 100% what to expect. Grammar was a bit spotty, but can be fixed with a friend to proof read or author proof read. Great book. I'm awaiting book two.

saripal99: Amazing book, i mean this book is really very well written and the characters are honestly something (i actually loved each and every character in this book).

alice: Ok, so at first I didn't like it and didn't really want to like it either, because I thought it was going to be like all the other sexist-werewolf-arranged-marriage stories, with characters that don't actually have a character or opinion. But this one starts off the way but after only a few chapt...

aishaarizaria23: I totally loved it! I wish there were more obstacles along the way and more details but all in all, I enjoyed reading this book!

Brittani Nicole Case: Your summary of the story is what got me to read it. You have a way with words and with humor. I didn't really see the strong-willed version of Cordelia. When I think of a strong-willed female character the very first one to pop in my head is Buffy Sommers (There is no stronger-willed female than...

Madeline2911: This is the second time I have this story and I have fallen in love with it all over again. I just can't get enough of your books. They are well written and the plot is developed really well. Please continue writing!

Tinkerbelle Leonhardt: I am a little biased when it comes to this authors work simply because I love the romantic style of his writing. It captivates the innocence within me about how you simply discover the opposite sexes! well worth the read of not just this but any of his books <3

Jada Bland: Strong story line. Loved the dynamic characters. Amazing!!! I'm really excited for the next part in this story. I need to know what happens to Haley, Logan and the crew. I was captivated by the first chapter and stayed like that until the very last sentence.
