Dying Embers free pdf The embers of hate and bigotry lay smoldering beneath the ashes of a century. Glowing dimly, still hot, it would take only a wind to blow away the ash and fan them to flaming life. That wind did come and the flames rose. Set during the time of school desegregation, 'Dying Embers' is a story of love, hate, terrible tragedy and immense courage. It is a story of growing up. Six young people cling to their friendship while the winds of racial bigotry blow and rage around them. They are forced to confront those whose hatred is born out of ignorance and self-loathing. As their world is painfully remolded, they mature and gain a deeper understanding of who they are...and of courage. Along the way, a young man who had never known friendship learns it in an uncommon way from an unlikely source. Together, they discover that the bonds of friendship have no color. Maturing can be a difficult process for the young. For the traditions and culture of an entire society, it can be, it was, excruciatingly painful.

About Glenn Trust

A native of the south, Glenn Trust was born in Columbus, Georgia in 1951, the first of five children. His father's work as a salesman filled his early years with moves from the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Georgia to Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Petersburg, Virginia and Baltimore, until finally returning to the Atlanta area in 1965. From then on, he remained a Georgian, going to school and growing up in the Atlanta area. Varied work and life experiences have given him an appreciation for the virtues and faults of people at all levels of society. He says about his work, "For the record, I love people, the humanity that populates the world. People are infinitely interesting, all of them. I may not like certain individuals and I may hate the things they do, but as a group, I am fascinated by people. "I do work at trying to understand human strengths and frailties, and try above all else in writing to bring life and reality to the characters in my stories. The white hats the heroes wear are intentionally spotted and grayed by their own demons and struggles. The bad guys are not always misunderstood Robin Hoods. Sometimes they are just truly bad with no possibility of social redemption. "In the end, the stories are fiction, about fictional people. I believe that through fiction, some of the greatest truths may be discussed and discovered about our humanity, or the lack of it. "Finally, like real people, the characters I try to paint are not completely good and rarely completely evil. Like most of us, they lie somewhere in between." To date, Glenn Trust has authored eight novels including The Hunters series of mystery/suspense thrillers and the Blue Eyes mystery/romance series featuring the exploits of Alice Trent, a woman making her way in a difficult world. The work he considers his most important is Dying Embers, a novel about friendship, coming of age and overcoming the societal failings of the past. It is set during the turbulent days of the 1960's in the south during desegregation, a time that he personally experienced. Lightning in the Clouds, a collection of short stories dealing with "end of life" events was published in February 2015. Others are planned. While writing is his passion, he is also an avid RVer, walker, guitar player and reader, he resides with his wife in Nevada where they make the most of every opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful world.
