Many tragic and many glorious events took place in the period from the late 1800's to the 1970's. Wars were fought, lives were created and lost, fortunes were made and lost. Some by the natural hand of fate and others by the schemes of bad people who cared little about the suffering they caused.But it was love that would eventually bring the lost back into the fold, erase the unearned sins of the innocent, and ultimately triumph over tragedy and loss. This historical tale, taking place in and around Aurora, Texas, portrays persons only partly imagined. It is about hard times, forbidden romance, and the unstoppable movement of hands on the clock. It is a story of being found after being lost, of crying out in the night then receiving unanticipated, unimagined comfort. It is also about the weak rising up to exact deadly revenge on evil people.Above all, it is a story about the transcendence of love persisting through chaotic fate and the incoherent, intolerant rules of society.

About the Author

Jerry Cooper was born into a world of wind, sand, crude oil, and cotton fields in Lamesa, Texas. His parents were the children of dirt-poor share-cropping cotton farmers. His teenage mother was one of six siblings and his father was one of eighteen.

The obligations of marriage, work, and child-rearing took priority for decades. None of those things are regretted, but now it is time to sit down and write. Gracefully or poorly, eloquently or nonsensically, the words must come out - it really doesn't matter one way or the other. The act of writing is a fundamental thing in and of itself. The expression of fantasies and dreams and experiences must finally emerge and be documented.

The words will be written, whether or not they are ever read. The thoughts and emotions will be expressed, whether or not they are ever comprehended.

It's like love - writing is an act more valuable when given than when received. And so it goes...
