Perry Kincaidabout this book: As a lifelong writer who has been published in numerous mediums at varying lengths for more than 15 years, I can say Last Train is the most personal piece I have ever completed.
Last Train is the story of Samuel Wrightman. As an elderly man leaving Montana bound for Georgia in the first trip he has taken in years, Samuel allows his mind to wander and recollects on the choices in his life. He relives the accomplishments, disappointments, milestones and the failures. Countless times in his life, a different decision would have met with drastically different circumstances. Just like everyone else, Samuel wanted to give up many times as his life never turned out the way he desired. Each time, however, he found the strength and the reasons to continue.
The genesis of this story can be traced back to the stories of my grandfathers who both returned from World War II forever changed. I have heard many say no one returns from war normal. Veterans may be able to hide the scars, but it is forever with them.
And time continues marching forward as these brave soldiers learned to cope with the changing postwar world.
It is for my grandfathers and all of those who have sacrificed on the battlefield I wrote this novel.
