Story Summary

24-year-old Morgan Branson has made a life in her hometown of Mountain Grove by owning and running a business unusual for a young woman: a mobile slaughtering and butchering service. By doing the killing herself, Morgan assures a humane practice for her clients, most of whom run small farms in the area, and go to her for the convenience of having the work done on their own property. Morgan’s passion for working with animals and animal products stretches into her other businesses: breeding dogs and making custom leather handbags.
