Readers will see the events unfold through the eyes of a farm family living during this time.

Beyond This Home is the fourth book in Lind’s Beyond Those Hills series about a Minnesota farm family. The story is told with a backdrop of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Kennedy assassination. The family members are deeply affected by the national problems and unrest.

A retired high school English teacher who resides in Battle Lake, Lind’s writings have appeared in many periodicals and anthologies. Lind grew up in the Leaf Hills of Minnesota, where he experienced life in a setting similar to that of his novels. He received a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota and taught senior high English for more than 30 years.

The books are available at Cherry Street Books in Alexandria or may be ordered from local book stores.
