A mother's heart is a treasure trove of love, memories, hopes-and more than a few secrets. Alice Jenkins' heart held more secrets than most mothers could ever begin to imagine. Twice married, and with a son from each union, she treasured her family's secrets over the course of fifty years-secrets that if revealed would not only change their own lives, but the course of her nation, and perhaps all of mankind.

The three-generation chronicle of Alice's Boys is the saga of two half-brothers and how the windstorms of fortune twist them through life from poverty to riches, from ranching to sailing the high seas. After surviving two world wars, they are pulled apart, only to be drawn back together aboard a top-secret experimental battleship whose very existence has been hidden from the world.

Aboard that ship, Alice Jenkin's two boys will find their way into what was surely the strangest-and most secret-naval battle of all time, in a series of events that may forever remain hidden from the archives of history. As amazing and unpredictable as their lives and story were, their history was written into those archives with invisible ink, and to this day remain unknown to millions.

About the Author

K. W. NEWENS grew up in southeastern Colorado, where he spent nearly all his time, outside of school, working for and with his two uncles, farming and feeding cattle. His father, a Navy veteran, worked for the Department of the Army. His father's service memories, coupled with travel-ling to veteran-related reunions and meetings, sparked K. W.'s lifelong interest in military history and hardware.
He graduated from Colorado State University as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and returned to southeastern Colorado to practice mostly large animal medicine. A small-scale stockman and animal lover, he has had to feed at least one animal (and sometimes dozens) of some kind every day of his life from age six on.
The odd man out in his family, his wife, daughter, and son are all teachers. Both he and his wife are enthusiastic trout fishers, and spend as much time on the waters of Colorado as they can.
