“The Wall”: a complex tale of conflicting moral and political values, the fourteenth book in the Tom Hastings series. “The Wall” is the creation of published author Ernest Francis Schanilec, a retired dentist turned full-time novelist based out of Texas, near the famous wall.

Schanilec writes, “ ‘Oh my god, Tom, the army guys have spread out, forming a defensive circle around us. The protesters are trying to get through the army guys but are being pushed back by Army rifles!’ Sammy exclaimed.
Samantha raised a fist in the air. ‘Tom, I can’t just stand by and watch all of this without doing something. I’m going to attack!’ she exclaimed.
‘What!’ Tom gasped. ‘You’re crazy.’ He stared in amazement as Sammy charged ahead and approached the line of the Army National Guard.
Samantha got to the front line. She circled her hands around her mouth and yelled, ‘Go home, you liberal idiots! Go home to your mommy!’
Some of the Guardsmen turned their heads and smiled.
Samantha continued to yell at the students. Then one of the protesters threw their flag at her. She stooped down and picked it up and held it high. ‘I’m an American, and you all are not! You are enemies!’ she yelled.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ernest Francis Schanilec’s new book is an invigorating close-up look at the violent action surrounding a notorious barrier at the southern border of the nation and all it implies for those fighting on either side.

The wall becomes a powerful metaphor not only for the physical barricade but the political, emotional, intellectual, and idealistic separation of man from man.
