The Red Wing Sings

Here’s a newly released novel that I’m certain the author won’t mind me borrowing the cover art to describe.  Why, won’t he mind?  Well, because in the lower left-hand corner of the cover art is one of my pictures.  If you follow this link to for the novel you can click on the novel cover and it will give you the acknowledgements (where I’m mentioned) and the first three chapters of the novel.  Enjoy!

The Red Wing Sings

by Tom Omstead

Will Anderson has chosen to live a simple life until the morning he wakes from a dream to discover that a nuclear nightmare has just begun. A madman has put in motion a witch’s brew of events which catapults the current state of fear in America to new heights and leads to the US armed forces occupying Canada. Cut-off in Ontario, with 3,500 kilometres of occupied territory separating him from his long-time girlfriend Sydney, Anderson embarks on an ‘off-the-grid’ journey to rejoin her in their BC Rockies home. En route, he finds refuge with strangers who become his friends: a French family living in a log cabin in Québec, an eccentric professor, and a native tribe in Ontario holding fast to their traditions and customs. Discovering the lost diary of Sir Isaac Brock, renowned strategist of the War of 1812, Will learns of Brock’s timeless strategies to drive out the invaders and feels compelled to inspire others to join him in active resistance to the occupation. As the story unfolds, some believe everything they hear without question, but others start to question everything they believe.
