The Book: Life altering events sometimes present themselves in the form of tragedy. Samuel McRoberts, settling into his golden years, is a man residing within the confines of his once sound mind. At 62, his past is his present. The future is of little significance.

Dashed with humor and inspiration, 21 Guns Bid me Goodbye is the story of Samuel’s life leading up to the events causing his mind to exit stage right.
