Grit & Granite by Katherine Johnson


This novel is a fictionalized account of a real life event that set my father and his partner against one of the largest and most powerful corporations in the United States.  This story tells of his fight against corporate greed and ambition to protect his client's legacy and fortune.  This battle also created collateral damage of despair, dissapointment, and disillusionment in his own family.  Was the struggle worth the risk of losing the most important treasure of all - his family?
