Thomas Conrad has completed his new audiobook "The Blazing Star": a gripping and potent story of betrayal, love, and tragedy in the American West. The captivating tale follows the turbulent lives of identical conjoined twins Chastity and Prudence. As the girls pursue their dream of separation and normalcy with determination and grace, their journey takes unforeseen detours and changes the lives of all they meet.
Author Thomas Conrad writes, "The match flared, illuminating an unshaven face beneath a wide-brimmed, snow-covered hat. Smoke billowed from the well-used corncob pipe as the mounted figure drew from it in long slow breaths. The man brought the glowing bowl to the top of the saddle horn, holding it in both hands and feeling its warmth, his dark eyes never leaving the conflagration in the near distance. The horse shuddered beneath him, shedding its blanket of snow to the knee-deep accumulation on the ground."
Published by Audiobook Network, author Thomas Conrad's new audiobook covers twenty years and follows the twins to Alamo, Montana, where they hope to finance their unspoken goal of separation as showgirls and prostitutes. There they are rescued by a 15-year-old boy named Sam Shines when the Blazing Star burns down. Sam travels with them to St. Louis, where he is wanted for murder, and on to Chicago for an appointment with a renowned doctor. Their arrival coincides with the Great Chicago Fire, and conflagration continues to define their lives.
