"The Boy" -

Set in the deep South, a mentally ill vagrant finds an injured boy alongside a lonely country road. In attempting to help the boy, the vagrant betrays him, sending the two of them fleeing cross-country from an insanely tortured father who uses the law to track them in an attempt to silence them both -- or recover what he has lost. All are troubled souls with inner demons; for the vagrant, it is his past; for the boy, his present, for both, their futures, and for the law officers, a mystery to be solved and brought to justice. All have their individual goals and hidden motives.

Richly textured, this story will have you sweltering in the South, have you on the run while the cicadas sing, and take you into the minds of the insane, and one small lonely child who has suffered unbearable and unmentionable abuses at the hands of his father. Addressing issues of "good ol' Southern boy politics" and corruption, the tightness of family and clan, and the dirty little secrets they hide, this story is hard hitting, and an emotional roller coaster ride. Its a long read, but like that proverbial roller coaster, it picks up speed as youbegin to hurtle along into an uncertain future with an unsettling past.

"I loved the story when I started reading it. I got so excited because I could tell that this story would be really good, like a delicious piece of chocolate that you want to savor forever. The sentence structure is varied, vocabulary's impressive . . . . without seeming awkward like it does when people just go crazy using a thesaurus, and the plot and characters are equally well-done. . ." (- non-m)

" . . . written in a timeless style . . . powerful and unsettling . . . a piece of art." (Lou M.)
