A classic tale of love and passion, written by the noted film and TV actor, A Feather in the Rain is based on an event in Alex’s life.

Alex Cord began writing a journal after the death of his son. He says that soon after he started writing, the story took on a life of its own. His many western acting roles, plus a lifetime spent as an accomplished horseman, enabled him to create a background of gripping reality for A Feather in the Rain -- a love story of heart and passion.

The book signing event is open to Costco members.

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Feather in the Rain. I felt a real affinity with the characters and hope to one day see this book as a motion picture."
Harrison Ford, actor

Ernest Borgnine, Academy Award-winning actor, says of A Feather in the Rain, "Alex has written one of the finest love stories I’ve ever read."
