This book is the sequel to the author's book, The Winds of Destiny, which The Midwest Review, readers, and other authors gave a five star review. Read the following synopsis and you will find this book very entertaining. The author continues the dramatic and tragic real life story about his family¿s secret. His previous novel, which critics and readers have given rave reviews, sat the stage for sequels to his dramatic story. Readers demanded sequels to the previous novel. The author agreed to quench their thirst with more true drama about his family. In this dramatic true story, the author finds and visits for the first time the grave of a relative who perished during the great family tragedy, though it is forty-five years after the tragedy occurred. The event was filmed by the author¿s hometown television station. In this offering, the author, Willie Tee, explores in depth the issues and problems that caused his family¿s burdensome tragedy during nineteen fifty-seven on his maternal grandparents farm. The tragedy would be kept as a secret from Willie, his siblings, and cousins, who were toddlers when the incident occurred. The secret and its burdens were revealed to them when they became teenagers. A series of tragedies spun from the secret over a forty-year period of time. Perhaps it was coincidental, but this sequel raises some issues about the tragedy that are laden with mystery. This memoir mentions that subsequent deaths and tragedies within the author¿s family had dates with similar numerical significance. This story explicitly depicts the relativity of dates on which family tragedies occurred. The dates indicate a pattern. It is often said that our lives and its events are destined when we are born. The pattern of dates in which tragedies occurred in the author¿s family seemed predictable and is eerie. Readers will be inspired by this masterpiece of a story.Was this review helpful?
