Frank N. Jarnot Releases WINTER'S FAITH
Winter's Faith, the new novel from Frank N. Jarnot, is about the adventures of a young man who was born in humble beginnings, and was reared by his mother as a single child upon his father's demise when he was only three years old. He was raised in the proximity of the Connecticut shoreline which conveniently allowed him to learn the nature of tides, ocean currents, and boats which he enjoyed and studied in great detail.
The young man who is named Nick eventually escaped his humble surroundings by volunteering to join the army during the Korean War, and was quickly promoted to the rank of sergeant because of his agility and natural abilities. These qualities in conjunction with additional specialized training, eventually allowed him to be inducted into a Special Forces unit of the United States, and earned him the right to wear that unit's famed Green Beret, an emblem of distinction.
The saga of his Orient adventures eventually led Nick to marry a young Korean girl for political reasons, and a termed agreement with her father, which enabled him to purchase a sailboat in Hong Kong upon his discharge from the Army. He uses this to travel across the Pacific Ocean to the United States with his inexperienced Korean wife. Their adventurous journey included defending themselves from Chinese pirates. They also happened to carry six tons of gold bullion hidden in the keel of their sailboat, which was used as ballast.
Nick eventually built an empire. He amassed a fortune which he shared liberally with his loyal friends and various associates who aided him in his quest. Loyalty and honesty became the 'backbone' of his carefully structured organization. His vast fortune, augmented over a period of time, consists of valuable real estate and high yielding stocks and bonds; his agreement with his bride's father allowed him to keep half of the gold he had smuggled into the United States from the Far East. From his humble beginnings to running a vast business empire, Nick has traveled an ocean-length's worth of experience and adventure that will leave readers asking for more of the kind of adventure that Frank Jarnot provides.
