When I was twenty I came face to face with the old man convicted of paying five thousand dollars for the murder of my father.

From the gripping first line of this true story, you will follow a young man's journey through grief and despair to acceptance and forgiveness. Summoning the memories of the events surrounding the August 7, 1967, car bombing of Jackson County, Georgia, prosecutor Floyd "Fuzzy" Hoard, Alone among the Living is G. Richard Hoard's remembrance of the father he lost that day and his subsequent struggle to come to terms with the murder.

G. Richard Hoard is a graduate of the University of Georgia and Asbury Theological Seminary. An award-winning author, his books include: The Race Before Us, Through Fear of Death, and The Missing Boys. He and his wife, Candise, make their home near Athens, Georgia.

Editorial Reviews

A book that movingly describes the loneliness, alienation, and anguish everyone feels at some point during their teenage years, albeit on perhaps a less intense scale. He writes of the longing for parental approval that continues even after a parent is gone. And he writes of the universal struggle to make sense of a world that often seems ruled by chaos and to find one's place in it.
