MINNETONKA, Minn. (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
In “The Inner Circle: Volume 2: The Summerfields” (published by iUniverse), author Edwin G. Rice’s new novel, readers join the Summerfields as they, along with a group of like-minded friends, combat political extremism.
When Edmund Summerfield finds that the individuals he associates himself with at the country club are actually a group of ultra-conservative men who put limitless wealth and political power before freedom and democracy, he decides to gather his friends and family to combat this new threat to America: political extremism.
Despite the seemingly insurmountable challenges that loom in the near future, the newly formed group is not about to give up. With no time to lose and the country on the brink of economic calamity, the Summerfields and their friends must act on their unselfish intentions to serve the common good, never giving up hope that their beloved nation will, as always, rise up to meet its challenges and threats.
An excerpt from “The Inner Circle”:
“After a pause and a turn of his eyes to the window and the clearing sky and the trees tossing in the wind, Edmund Summerfield spoke again. ‘Lionel, Nancy knows why I called. It is to tell you that this will be a week that you will remember. It is also a week when you will be made an offer, a proposition. I trust that it will interest you and tempt you to make an acceptance…‘In so little time when it is measured against man’s time on this earth and the history of our country, perhaps only five decades or less; they have brought us irresponsibly and even purposefully to the brink of an economic calamity. I anticipate that the changes they have brought upon us…will be the substance of many conversations and meetings that are to come… My son, you must remain apart; you must refuse what you will be offered, or you could be lost to us. Lionel, you must advise and lead as we strive to do what we can here in our state…Once again, I’ll say to you both: we must do everything that we can.’”
