My fifth book, The Day I Saw The Hummingbird, wil very soon to go to print. While the last preparations are underway, I wanted to share the cover and synopsis with my cyber friends. As the sales from my last book are starting to dwindle, it is my hope that my good luck continues with this book. That would mean a whole lot more dogs will be rescued from kill shelters. So far to date this year, 2017, we’re at 763 dogs saved. I’m deeply grateful for the success my books have achieved and the benefit so many dogs have received. And to all the kindhearted people doing what they can to help a dog, to help another animal, to help a human being, to help our beloved planet in any way-large or small, BLESS YOU.
I’ll do a post when my book goes on Amazon. Meanwhile wishing you all happy, healthy, and safe days to follow.
BACK COVER SYNOPSIS
On the eve of his tenth birthday, a young slave’s life is turned upside down. The unthinkable events that led up to the day Oscar Mercer saw a hummingbird test the limits of this young boy’s body, mind and soul. Gripped with fear and filled with anger, Oscar faces raw, crushing hatred aimed at him and everyone he loves. In a time when a nation was ripped apart geographically, economically, politically and morally, comes a story of a courageous boy who began life as a slave on a sugarcane plantation in Louisiana and escapes via the Underground Railroad. Through the efforts and good will of kind, brave people determined to free slaves, Oscar faces devastating obstacles and dangers. Struggling with his inner impulse to seek revenge for the injustices and violence levied on his family and friends, he discovers that in bondage you pray to God, but in freedom you meet Him. From the award-winning, best-selling author of The Seven Year Dress comes a story that brings another cadre of memorable characters alive on pages that pulse with hatred and kindness, cruelty and compassion, despair and hope. Oscar’s journey on the Underground Railroad is a heart-pounding ride that the reader will remember long after this story ends.
“A superb portrayal of courage and strength of the human spirit. A poignant and unforgettable page-turner. I loved every page.” Jana Petken, bestselling author of The Guardian of Secrets.
