5IVE SPEED - A NOVEL

It isn’t until Donald Roth meets his son’s future in-laws that he realizes he is tired of a three-speed life. Time to move up.

When Donald was a kid in the late 60’s on the South Side of Chicago, he had a Schwinn Sting Ray bike. Everyone did. But everyone else had a five-speed. Donald’s was a three-speed. It was good enough, as was explained by his parents, just as their Ford Maverick wasn’t the neighbor’s Le Mans, but it was good enough. And that’s the way Donald was taught to live his life. It was a three-speed life. It was good enough.

He marries Emily because she’s good enough. Emily marries Donald because that’s what she had planned, and she is not going to experience divorce as did her parents. Donald opens a law practice with his two best friends and roommates from college because it’s good enough.

Then the Roths meet their son’s future in-laws and everything changes.

Donald wonders if, in fact, he could get that five-speed.

In this hilarious and thought-provoking novel, the whole concept of morals and convention is turned inside out. Everything is perception. If you like Richard Russo, Tom Perotta, and Jonathan Franzen, you’re going to love this book.

Five Days in May

By Ninie Hammon / Genre: Contemporary, Religious & Inspirational Fiction / Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars (24 reviews)

Five Days in May

“Don’t never underestimate the power of doin’ the right thing.”

A TWISTER’S COMING. BIG! A MILE WIDE AND 8 MILES TALL.

The writhing finger of death hurls across the prairie toward Graham, Oklahoma, one Friday afternoon in May, 1963, on a collision course with the lives of 4 people—each of whom has already planned a personal rendezvous with death in some other form that day.

In Jonas Cunningham’s mind, what he’s planning isn’t murder. The handful of little white pills that will free his precious Maggie from the fog of Alzheimer’s is a gift, a final act of unconditional love.

Jonas’s 16-year-old granddaughter, Joy, isn’t planning “murder” either. She’s pregnant and sees only one way to keep from shaming her family. Secrets like that are hard to keep though, in a small town.

Joy’s father, Rev. Mac MacIntosh has lost his wife and his faith and on Friday, he plans to commit professional suicide—not just leave his church, but abandon his call to ministry.

Princess has an appointment with the Reaper on Friday, too, one she’s been staring down for 14 years. At 5 o’clock, the state of Oklahoma will strap her into an electric chair called Sizzlin’ Suzie and turn on the juice.

But as the strange, psychic death row inmate meets daily with the minister during the final 5 days of her life, everything in both their lives begins to change. Princess knows—about Mac’s life and family. And sees—the Big Ugly coming to eat up the world. She sees other terrible things, too, and is determined to carry to her grave an incredible secret about the little sister she confessed to beheading a decade ago.

When the savage tornado roars with a sound like gravel in a blender into their small prairie town on that May Friday, all 4 of the people who’d penciled in “death” on their calendars actually do confront eternity.

But none of them comes to the crossroads of life and death by the path they’d planned or leaves with the result they expected.

In the end, the Big Ugly will decide who lives and who dies that day.
