Full Moon Over Fox Prairie? -- A Sleepy Town Dogged by One Man's Greed Facing Life Changing Lessons
SUMNER, Ill., June 3, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Family remembrances stay forever, and play an important part in shaping beliefs and values. Indeed, they make a meaningful backdrop for a story captured in Willard D. Gray's new novel End of a Silence: Full Moon over Fox Prairie, (now available through 1stBooks). End of a Silence is a touching story about the plight of the lowly farmers of Fox Prairie.

But rape and the cold-blooded murder of the victim's husband was more than the inhabitants of this Illinois farming community could stand. They had seen White commit the murder and feared that he would evade the legal system again. Would lynch-mob vengeance assure them that their sense of justice be done? What impact would this drastic action have in changing the lives of these otherwise law abiding and God fearing people?
