Bottom Line

Bottom Line is chapter 20 of Fine Line, the sequel to Woodcutter’s Revival. Both historical fiction novels, written by Jerry Slauter are set at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.

After Stewart learned that Indiana Governor Frank Hanly had the resort at French Lick closed, he began to wonder if Mudlavia might offer goods and services that were not legal, yet increased the profitability of the establishment. He was sure Mudlavia might do better with the strongest competition out of the way.

Stewart was to meet the others on Friday afternoon to spend the weekend at Mudlavia. He began to have doubts about the innocence of the resort. The following is an excerpt expressing those doubts:

“Stewart wondered if the guests could obtain everything they wanted and if what happened at Mudlavia stayed at Mudlavia. He knew enough about human nature to realize that people tended to act differently in a strange and exotic environment than they would at home and around the familiar faces of friends and family. Whether seeking outright hedonistic pleasure or amusement, entertainment was surely a premium here, “Forget reality; Relax; Enjoy!”

“After the walk, he returned to the veranda to wait for Victoria, Raymond, Michael and Whitney to arrive. A piano player was serenading the guests from a baby grand. He learned that Paul Dresser, writer of “On The Banks Of the Wabash” used to serenade the guests on occasion. Of course local residents claimed he wrote the song at Mudlavia. Stewart wondered as he listened if Kramer had a passion to bring culture to this remote area, or if he figured he could make more money by hiring quality entertainment. Maybe giving back in some way was his subconscious justification for amassing huge amounts of wealth, or a way to promote it.”

Woodcutter’s Revival is available now. Fine Line is due to be released in 2014.
