Whispers in the Wind (Paperback)
Where will the wind blow next?
New York City, 1871. Fourteen-year-old Dane Weston comes home to an empty apartment. A gang of teenage boys has murdered his family, shattering his dream of becoming a doctor. Driven to the streets with other homeless waifs, Dane's new occupation is begging for food. Worse things await misunderstandings, imprisonment, and separation from his pretty orphan friend, Tharyn. The gentle breezes of the country seem worlds away, but still they sigh the poor boy's name. . .
About the Author
I managed to obtain my college education by attending night classes at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, California, giving special interests to the field of computer programming. It was shortly after that when I made the move to Colorado and have remained here ever since. I first began writing fiction in 1997 while on a bowhunting trip to the majestic Sangre De Cristo Mountains of beautiful central Colorado. The desire to write that initial novel just sort of flared up after having read a few books by Author/Evangelist, Al Lacy. I wrote that first novel, MUSTANG JUSTICE, on a notepad with a pencil (well...a few pencils really). One thing led to another and now, as of the time of this writing, I find myself not only the father of five wonderful daughters, but have also played a major role in the creation of 23 additional offspring...the titles of which are listed in the 'Books by r. William Rogers' section of my books. Having served in the US Air Force during the Vietnam Conflict, I managed to get through that all in one piece and now enjoy a leisurely life in Widefield, Colorado, with my wife of many years.
Al Lacy has written more than one hundred historical and western novels, including those in the Angel of Mercy, Battles of Destiny, and Journeys of the Stranger series. He and his wife, JoAnna, are coauthors of the Mail Order Bride, Hannah of Fort Bridger, Shadow of Liberty, Orphan Trains, Frontier Doctor, and Dreams of Gold series. The Lacys make their home in the Colorado Rockies.
