This novelette was written to fascinate and intrigue readers. It begins where Flashes of Insight ends, revealing the ongoing exploits of a family, the Cunninghams, smitten by tragedy and cursed by a dying king — but brought closer together by a living BOND that empowers all who dare to LOVE or HATE without measure! It explores the typical motives and potential of everyday men, women, and children who find themselves in atypical (gut-wrenching, heartfelt, or otherwise dire) circumstances. It dares to answer the question: What course of action(s) is a family allowed to take in defense of its own? And, it answers it in heroic fashion!
