"When it is dark enough, you can see the stars."
"A succinct literary masterpiece." -Midwest Book Review
"If Steinbeck, Walter Cronkite, Thoreau, and Bruce Springsteen all sat down together to write a novel, this would be it. I couldn't put it down."
Take a ride down the train tracks in the small town of Verities, and you’ll see one young man’s quests for meaning in his troubled life. Follow Sam’s journey as he grows up facing ugly truths about love and loss on the wrong side of the tracks. Verities is a hopeful story of rising above one’s circumstances, even in the cruel face of social injustice.
“Spotlights, in an era of receiving information in short bursts, the enduring value of books that make you think and see things you might never have seen.”
—Rich Garon, author of Felling Big Trees and Lee Fitts
