Título: A Milestone Day
Condición del libro: New
Tipo de libro: Hardcover
A Milestone Day takes place in St. Louis, Mo. and covers one day in the life of three young boys and a few colorful peripheral characters as well. It takes place in the late summer of 1957, a beautiful time to be alive, with flashback chapters for each of the three main characters and events significant to their character development. The basic theme of A Milestone Day is "How much trouble can three young boys get into (and hopefully out of) in a single day's adventures." The book is geared to be most enjoyable for boys and girls in the 11 - 15 year old age group, but is really a great book for all ages. The era in which the book takes place was a great time to be alive. It was a simpler way of life then. Most neighborhoods had their own grocery store, drugstore, shoe repair shop, delicatessen, etc. Just about everything you needed then was in access without requiring a vehicle. We had seasons marked by the burning of autumn leaves, snow in the winter, and long, very hot summers. The summers were full of life - bats in the evenings, katydids and crickets by the thousands, There were numerous street vendors - from the local hot tamale vendor with a hand cart to long vegetable trucks with every conceivable kind of fruit and vegetable to be sold right in front of your house. It was a magical era that doesn't exist today, replaced by mega malls, mega stores of every kind, and a world of electronic devices that were only science fiction at that time. Given a choice, I would take then over now any day.About the Author:
I am currently enjoying my first year of retirement from my career as a technical advisor. My wife and I live in a modest home in the St. Louis County area. Our two children, who gave me much input for my first fictional novel, are now fully grown and have left the nest. This has left me with more time to enjoy writing. Most of my writing to date has been technical manuals and associated product information. A Milestone Day, my first fictional novel, was written over a few years span of time with at least three re-edited copies before releasing the final manuscript for publication.Now beyond the "Technical Manual" phase of my life, I have just recently released "A Milestone Day" for publication. A sequel is in progress with help from our two children (now adults), who have contributed a lot through their personal experiences and their personal input to me. The first book - A Milestone Day - was strongly centered on the adventures of three young boys and a few colorful peripheral characters, whereas the sequel has a somewhat broader appeal in that much more character development and individual experiences are devoted to both sexes. Those who have read pre-publication copies of A Milestone Day have found it thoroughly enjoyable. I hope that you will enjoy it, and the sequel that will eventually follow.Charles M. Lockner, Sr.
