Hello I am back after a sick spell and a computer crash. I want to get my romance of Franklin and Maggie Mc Glathery to their marriage.
This story is a work of fiction it is how I imagine the love story between my characters was. It is based on their story but like I said I let imagination go wild and it was fun..
