‘A Path of Mystery’ By Loretta Moore

35-year-old African American William Lowell has entered a path of mystery that exposes the Colonial in America, and a horrific murder that takes place.
He’s driving his 1997 Lincoln, crossing from Pennsylvania into Delaware, when all of a sudden the surroundings begin to change and encounters a tavern that dates back to the colonial times. Everyone inside reflect the past. He’s totally confused. Not long after leaving there he encounters a gentleman in Colonial dress getting a horse and heading out.
The man is a Representative of Congress. He next finds himself witnessing the Congressman in a dress shop attracted to a beautiful mulatto dressmaker. Horror and a lot of mystery follows from there.
