Charlie Parker's Corner Of The....

Meg Wearing

When a half-breed opens his heart and home to others like himself, he encounters evil that threatens their very lives.


Charlie Parker and his wife, Polly enjoy a simple life on the Kansas prairie at the end of the nineteenth century. Their world is filled with county fairs, harvest festivals and horse races. And along with the good, they are all too aware that death, ravages of the elements, and disabilities of the body and mind lurk around each corner.

When their home is destroyed by a tornado, their pleasant existence is turned upside down. They are forced to move into the small town of Abilene while they rebuild. And while walking its streets, Charlie encounters an old nemesis: one who despises the Indian blood flowing through Charlie's veins.

Will the mysterious death of his mother be re-visited? Will the lives of Charlie and their half-breed children also be threatened? Charlie is once again reminded that the prejudice that wronged his ancestors is still a reality in his world.

Charlie Parker's Corner Of The Prairie is the third novel in The Shamrock series.

I read The (un)Ordinary LIfe of Minh. The writing is good; it flows well and the dialogue is adequate. I wasn't quite sure what to make of the story. I guess it has more of a YA slant to it, which I'm unaccustomed to reading. Best of luck with this. Meg Wearing view book

This is a well-written piece, but I find it rather dis-jointed. The first two chapter read like a psychological experiment - an essay contemplating what it would be like to lose one's memory. By the time the third chapter begins, a plot starts to emerge, but the dialogue is not very natural soundi... view book

This is a very well-written piece. The first paragraph opens with good descriptive imagery, although I think I would leave out the defecating lions; it ventures into TMI. The ruminations of the criminals flows well. In paragraph two, I noticed a sentence "should leave the child behind." I wonder... view book
