Time travel is hard on a person. Random time traveling is harder. Follow Rain’s adventure as he tries to figure out who he was and who he wants to be all while dealing with different eras of his world, Salvoa.
Will his interactions and decisions have a lasting impact throughout time, or will he be just a blip and fade away?
Mennonite farm boy Lance Roark’s faith is as big as the challenges he faces on his family’s drought-ravaged Dust Bowl spread on the old Chisholm Trail. He can also run over, around, and away from people on the football field and is a natural-born aviator. These abilities lead him to college gridiron glory and bring him into contact with famed aviators Charles Lindbergh and Wiley Post, entertainment icons Will Rogers and Bing Crosby, best-selling young author John F. Kennedy, and President Franklin Roosevelt.
As war clouds gather across the seas, Lance finds romance first with teenaged Chickasaw cowgirl and stunt flying sensation Sadie Stanton, then with beautiful oil heiress Mary Katherine Murchison, whose mesmerizing voice carries her to the heights of Big Band Era stardom. Nearly all of this crashes against his pious, peaceable ways. And it leads him into the dangerous world of America First, the Lindbergh-led organization that opposes the popular Roosevelt’s covert drive toward American involvement in World War II, now ablaze in both Europe and the Pacific.
When the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor, Lance, with his lifelong commitment never to raise his hand against another human being, faces his ultimate decision—whether to accept command of a B-17 Flying Fortress in which he would face, and inflict, mass slaughter in Nazi-occupied Europe amidst history’s most fearsome war.
It’s a couple of semesters after the fateful Tri-County Relay Race that changed everything for the crew from Yellow County, Maryland. Charlie is treading water at a dead-end job, uninspired as a writer once again, and taking classes at the Yellow County Community College. Roheed is a successful app developer on the west coast, but his relationship with his girlfriend Florence is on the rocks. Jonathan is the swim team coach at the community college. He’s not living at the Swim and Racquet Club anymore and he’s never looked back.
When Jonathan and his fiancée’s wedding weekend brings the gang back together it kicks off another series of happenstances that could mean the end of old relationships, the beginning of new friendships, and the bottling of miniature pirate ships (well except for that last one). A villain threatens the wedding and the gang has to rely on an old traitor, a new flame, and a forgotten family member to hopefully wed Jonathan and his betrothed, keep Roheed and Florence together, and maybe inspire Charlie to get off his bum and follow his dreams.
The citizens of Peter L. Harmon’s wonderfully weird fictional Maryland county are back in this essential, esoteric new chapter in The Happenstances… saga.
The world is darker than it seems. Demons, vicious half-humans and evil creatures of myth and legend prowl the earth, unseen to human eyes but not to the eyes of 14-year-old Sage Alexander. Descended from humans and angels, Sage has the power to see and fight all these creatures, and in fact he must. The human race is in danger, controlled unknowingly by the Seven Princes of Hell, the seven deadly sins. Greed, Sloth, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Wrath and Pride all breathe their sin into weaker human ears and take those willing souls for their own, as they have for centuries. And now Mammon, Greed incarnate, has possessed Sage’s father and threatens to keep him forever. The Angelic Response Council, a committee of angels, archangels, guardians and half-angelic humans, has fought the forces of blackest evil for centuries, but their numbers are dwindling. There is prophecy of a gifted warrior, who will come in the Council’s darkest hour to bring about the demise of the fallen angels cast out from heaven and all of their nefarious descendants. His name will be Sage Alexander. Sage must face danger and death as he assembles a supernatural team and battles his way through time and Godspace in order to save his family from the grips of Greed. But he has an even bigger quest ahead of him. … This is only the beginning.
