The Second Virtue tells the story of three remarkable individuals: Donald is an eighteen-year-old striving for independence; Telli survived a horrific crime and labors to overcome the fears the experience left behind; Joy longs to escape her cynicism and reconnect with the hopeful woman she once was. Crisp and fast-moving, the vel weaves three stories into a fabric held together by a common theme - courage.
Dennis Vickers was born in Winner South Dakota while the Yankees were beating the (Brooklyn) Dodgers in the third game of the World Series in New York. The attending physician brought a radio into the delivery room so he wouldn't miss any of the game. The Yankees won 4 to 3. Luckily, the delivery took only a few innings and there were no complications requiring the doctor's attention. Now living on the banks of the Wolf River, Vickers spends his days pursuing the many joys of life -- and trying not to miss any of the game.
