A Silver Ring by Nathan Gerard Carriker

Every soul has aMission-but everylife has its Fate.

If the Army had just let Wes Hutchinson be a pilot, maybe things would have been different. He'dget to marry hisEnglish love, Melody. They might have had a sonhe could teach to fly. Perhaps after the war Wes could have even squared things up with his sister's suitor,small town miscreant FrankLawton.Their children could have beenplaymates; it would have been so perfect.

But the day after Melody gives him a special gift and tries to tell him she'spregnant, combat gives Wes his life's wish. Left atthe controls of his crew's ravagedbomber - with enemy fighters diving in for the kill - forhis last harrowing minutes onEarth, he's apilot.

Miredin a fog of shame andheartbreak,Melody carries Wes' photo, his child, andthe giftheleft behind to his family in America. But by the time she reaches them, grief - andnow-hometown-hero Frank Lawton - have taken their toll.We can only fight so hard, so long.

Forty years later, war orphan Justin Prator can't explain the talent for flying he and his son Paulshare,untilhe's contacted by his birth mother, a kindlyoldwoman witha stubborn Englishaccent. The sameday, Paul falls in love with anoddly familiar firebrand. Before theywed, Paul's "new" grandmother presents himwith theirfamily's lost icon - a silver ring - and pulls a smoldering tinderbox from the emotional rubble of World War Two.

About the Author

Nathan began flying at age eight, not long after learning he was the nephew of a B-24 flight engineer killed in action in 1944 and becoming obsessed with his story. That story, and many others close to his heart, inspired him to write his 2011 novel, A Silver Ring.

Licensed on his 17th birthday and an airline pilot at age 20, Nathan's now in his second decade with a major American airline. He lives for flying, his wife and family, a few "pet" vehicles, music, drink, cigars, and a well-turned double entendre.
