Description of A New Name by Grace L. Hill
Murray's name--Van Rensselaer--brings wealth and status until a split second and one hasty decision turns this gentleman's son into a fugitive. Murray's joyride with a long-lost childhood friend ends with Murray's car swerving off the road and lands Bessie in the hospital--Murray thinks for good. Suddenly, his only option is to run, but will running bring a fresh start or further tragedy? As Murray assumes another young man's identity in a distant town, can a new name truly bring new life?
