The story begins when Tom Lewis meets up with a long lost relative,Martin Crump.As Martin begins to trust Tom,he reveals bit by bit the story of his childhood,and ultimately Tom's heritage.Martin's father La Var Crump,while well respected in the Church of Latter Day Saints,was a cruel man who ruled his family with an iron hand.His wife and three children,while wanting his love and respect,lived in fear of his anger and violence. The characters are very believable.Tom ,as a young man about to become a father,ponders whether he is up to the challenge. Sara, his wife, while at first unwilling for Tom to pursue a relationship with Martin,accepts the fact that this is what Tom must do. Martin ,the small boy who fears his father but wants his love so badly,Martin the teenager seduced by life's temptations, and finally Martin,the man,who, disappointed with life,withdraws from the world.

An intensely enjoyable novel about family, religion and the majesty of Utah. An exhilarating and moving story. Dave Shields shows that even when things look hopeless, you can be determined to make it better. I recommend this book highly.

I'm glad I read this novel. The characters were well developed and highly varied, keeping things interesting. The writing is strong. The story is something I easily sunk into, and I enjoyed staying in the world the author created. An important criterion for recommending a novel is the ending. I want to feel something, see a resolution, and understand why this novel was written and what it was leading to. I want to close the cover feeling grateful that I invested the time to read it. I got all that with The Pendulum's Path. An easy five star rating for me.
