The series premise:
God sees that much of his creation has withered and died. His last hope is that Earth can be saved and is perhaps all that can be salvaged. He sets upon a desperate plan in which he sends seeds to Earth that are mankind’s hope for survival. He sends an archangel to assist the four seeds, the three generations of the Lancaster family.
The Lancaster’s are unaware of their celestial powers or that they are “seeds” with a godly mission. They go about their lives believing they are ordinary American citizens in a modern day world. Each Lancaster experiences life quite differently and it is only with age that each begins to understand their unique relation with a higher power. The stories of self-discovery show the struggles that each encounters as they make their way in a world that is challenging them at every turn.
Lean against the Wind
Raymond Lancaster, the second seed, is “called” to work as a Special ed. teacher in Springfield, Michigan in 1994. He begins his work in a forgotten dilapidated schoolhouse in Springfield where he finds success with the students and staff. Mr. Harrelson, an aging principal, is an inspiration to Lancaster, and his associates, Mills, and Rossiter. Mr. Harrelson is the victim of a scam that robs the estates of senior citizens and passes away penniless.
A new special ed. Center is built in his honor and Lancaster and the staff are consolidated into it. Lancaster quickly realizes that the new administration is ruthless and has little concern for the students. He battles Principal Porterfield and Assistant Principal, Jacqueline Daugherty at every turn. When Lancaster discovers that one of his students, Jon Causey possesses world class singing talent, he brings him to the attention of a talent agency that signs him up for a ten year contract. Porterfield and Daugherty fight his every move to assist Jon and other students and a battle between the administration and the staff reaches immense proportions. A Nobel Prize winning news reporter, Tina Shakleford gets involved and takes sides with the staff. A scandal involving Detroit racketeers is uncovered and Lancaster is determined to uncover the truth at whatever cost it may bring.
You’ll meet wonderful characters that will warm your heart, Big Jim, Tiny Tim, Ben, Arch’, and a host of others before it is all said and done. Most of all, you will be on the inside track and discover what it was like to be a special ed. teacher during the turbulent 90’s.
When RJ told me that he was working on this novel, I offered to read and critique it. It lived up to my expectations and I discovered a world of very special characters that jumped off the page and into my heart. I laughed often and called from time to time to inquire if some of the events actually happened. And then I cried when Jon lost his voice. I was outraged for the Harrelson gals who suffered at the hands of swindlers. One would not believe all the hardship endured by the teaching staff at the hands of the villainous administration who turn out to be heartless criminals. I cheered the ending when all the villains were rounded up and Tiny finally got his lawn mower. I have never read anything like this, and can only say I recommend it to virtually everyone. I am now a devoted fan.
