When a half-breed opens his heart and home to others like himself, he encounters evil that threatens their very lives.
Introducing the third novel in The Shamrock Series: Charlie Parker is the very essence of the turn-of-the-century Kansan, a man of the land dealing in a matter of fact manner with ravages of the weather, deaths incurred in a fashion that would have been unthinkable in modern society, and illnesses of the mind treated in a bizarre manner.
He and his wife, Polly enjoy a simple life; they look forward to Saturday night barn dances; they drive miles in a horse drawn buggy to attend a county fair, and he falls in love with the sport of horse racing.
And through it all he maintains his sense of humor. His friends have unfortunately learned that when a practical joke has been played, Charlie's probably the culprit.
Charlie bears a cross of blood, the son of a Kiowa woman married to a European immigrant, a son of the prairie. When he and Polly begin populating their home with other half breed children, an old nemesis arises, an evil that will eventually threaten their very lives.
