About the author:
Born in 1938 and raised in B.C., Canada, I obtained an engineering degree majoring in math, physics and electronics two years after the Avro Arrow cancellation decimated Canada's aviation industry. That led me to emigrate to the States and work 35 years for The Boeing Company, rising to Chief Engineer, Avionics and Flight Systems.

After retirement, I first turned my creative juices to developing software for financial planners, in part to keep track of my modest nest egg. In 2009, I succumbed to a long-standing urge to write a novel which was first published under the title "Delbert Pillage" and now as "Two Loves Lost". A second novel, "The Pizza Dough King" was published late in 2012. For more information, visit www.sandygraham.net and my blog from there.

Two Loves Lost
 

Authored by Sandy Graham
Edition: 1

This emotion-packed story introduces Delbert Pillage, a scrawny child who hides his intelligence to minimize harass¬ment. Only Sylvia Cairns sides with him and a love between them is born. Delbert's true ability is discovered in high school and early entry into university separates them.

While he is away in a summer air force training program, a tragedy drives Sylvia to become a nun. Unable to contact her, Delbert must continue alone. He matures into Canada's youngest test pilot in time to live through the Avro Arrow cancellation, which decimates Canada's blossoming aviation industry.

With his two great loves lost, can one endure?
