Overview

The child's pleading eyes and outstretched hand dug at painful memories John had worked hard to bury. When he turned away, stern eyes and hands on hips awaited him.


"You can't even spare a smile for that boy, John?"


John blew out a tired sigh. "To what end, Mary? That boy's fate is as meat for the predators out there. Or meat for the Magistrate's axe – just like what happened to Jimmy."

Since mine is the first, I must honestly say this is an excellent story. Although disappointingly short, very well worth taking a few minutes to read. I will keep my eyes open for other writings by this author.

You people should just read this novel yourselves and write your own review on this book. I enjoyed reading this novel. ShelleyMA

The idea for the story is good and whats actually written is good but it jumps in the timeline quite a bit anf it almost feels like youre missing part of the story. I would have liked to see more of what happened and more character developmment and description not only for John but to the little boy, Shawn, and the wife, Mary, as well.
