Based on the life of Robert Cody, this thought-provoking, fictional memoir starts out in the late 1990s with Cody working for a master ship builder. While testing one of the ships out on the high seas off the United States Pacific Coast/Vancouver, Canada, he encounters an unusual cloud mass that the local fishermen explicitly avoid; saying people have gone in and never come out.
When curiosity gets the best of him, Cody decides to explore and discovers the last known landmass never having been chartered. Not being in any country’s territory, he now claims the island as his own.
Cody goes to Ireland to sign a ship deal for the company he works for and buys an Irish Lottery ticket ‘for the heck-of-it’. A week later, he finds out he is now the richest man in the world. Thus, he has the funding to establish and settle his country. Little does he know, but North Korea has gotten wind of his island and finds it to be the perfect locale for a base to attack the United States.
Cody is the owner and the law…

From the first word, I was hooked. A story for all time! So realistic and embraceable for both men and women, and clean enough for young adults to read and be inspired by. Glass Wind Chimes is chock full of ‘God things’; miracles you could say. When Bob sees the mysterious cloud and hears the warning, all it does is spur his interest and adventurous spirit. Exploring his new world with the love he thought he could never find, and in such an honorable way, makes you cheer for them both. Enough could not be said for the depth and insight this wonderous tale gifts us with. A must read, no doubt, for those who root for the underdog, loves exploration of new lands, the ocean, and dreams of finding your soul mate. — CJ Loiacono
