Lucy Maddox knows how to hold the attention of her audience.
Maddox, an author and retired professor from Georgetown University, attracted more than 20 attendees at Rising Sun Library last week and captivated them from the get go.
Her latest book "The Parker Sisters: A Border Kidnapping", has all the elements of a great work of fiction - villains, heroes, victims - but is a true story. The tale was widely documented in local newspapers in 1851.
