Reporter Royce Jenkins meets a woman who claims she is Bonnie of
the famous Bonnie and Clyde. Since they have been dead since 1934
and it's now the mid-1980s, Royce has a hard time believing what this
woman is telling him. Royce decides he is going to investigate this

I absolutely loved BONNIE AND CLYDE
RESURRECTION ROAD by Clark Hays and Kathleen McFall. I have
always had a great interest in Bonnie and Clyde. Even though they
robbed banks, they shared when they could. Even in this book,
whenever they found people that were down on their luck, they would
share whatever they could with them.
Hays and McFall must have done a lot of research on Bonnie and Clyde
because this story felt so real! Could Bonnie and Clyde really have lived
a lot longer than what people think? Only time will tell. If you are a

Re: An exciting reimagining of history!
Thanks so much for reading and thoughtfully reviewing book one in our new series.
We're so pleased the history, and romance, came through loud and clear. There are
so many parallels between now and the 1930s, and who better than America's
most infamous outlaw lovers to explore economic and social justice issues on the
road to redemption???
