9781489558763: One Eyed Wolf

In his debut novel Roger Hoffman writes from childhood memories a beautiful and inspiring tribute to a day gone by, a time of innocence and harsh realities. Laced with nostalgia from the 1940's, One Eyed Wolf tells the story of two boys and their mother who try to make a go of it in the movie theater business when their dad is off to war. A small town story reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird cleverly crafts the timeless conflict between boys and their bullies. One particularly nasty nemesis, Jack Jenstsen, threatens the very survival of Robbie Holden and his brother Billy. Told through the eyes of a young boy, the world looks like a big place wrapped in the mysteries of growing up. Blessed with great-uncles who teach them about the family business and life, the young brothers both admire and struggle with the expectations of their family and the community in which they live. In a child's game played after dark, Billy falls comatose in a trance. When he finally comes to, he refuses to tell what he saw. Billy's vision of the one eyed wolf paints a frightening portrait of athletic accomplishments under a dark and foreboding cloud. Robbie writes in his journal, "Billy saw the future and it scared him to death." Is the one eyed wolf just a boy's fanciful dream, or will it return to consume its prey? Steve Ward, Editor and Author Paula Hoffman, Cover Design
