Minneappolis, MN, April 12, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Jack Cade returns stateside with a bad conduct discharge, an opioid addiction and a crippling case of survivor’s guilt – the aftermath of an IED attack that killed six Iraqi troops under his command. Now, the sergeant-turned-cab driver must confront another foe if he hopes to save his apartment complex: urban gentrification. A new novel, “Cade’s Rebellion” by Edward Sheehy, released by Dog Ear Publishing, tells Cade’s gripping story.
Cade and his fellow tenants, many from El Salvador who fled the country’s civil war, must fight once again to retain their homes. But they won’t fight unopposed: A visionary real estate developer and a vicious gang leader will go to enormous lengths to crush Cade and his neighbors.
When nervous investors abandon the deal, the developer and the city turn to “eminent domain” – the controversial seizure of private property for public use. The threat of a land grab that will displace thousands of tenants raises social justice questions as to what is legal versus what is moral.
As pressure rises, those involved turn to increasingly extreme measures. Will Cade and his neighbors prevail, or will the community become the latest victim of gentrification? Inspired by true events, “Cade’s Rebellion” leads readers on a perilous journey about one man’s efforts to reclaim his soul and a community’s fight for its share of the American dream.
Clarion Review, which gave the novel four stars, writes that it is “intelligent and lingering... 'Cade’s Rebellion' is a smart, memorable story of clashing cultures.”
Author Edward Sheehy served as a naval officer aboard a destroyer in the Middle East. Born in Washington, D.C., Sheehy graduated from the University of Maryland. He now lives in Minneapolis.
