Short Description: Brian paused here, but the priest remained silent, so he continued. “You see father. I turned out a monster just like my father did. Now, I will die just like he did.”

“The above line perhaps captures the ethos of Kingsley’s tale – one of a vicious cycle; as much of the family that he writes about as of the country in which they live. The words betray the tentativeness of a new writer, but that seeming uncertainty gives this work much of its power – as it tell a story with many contours; leaving you with a range of emotions from grief to love. You leave this book however with faith and with hope.
