Description

A novel of a family's past, and the generation of a future: a sequel to SHADOW OF ASHLAND. In Canadian writer Terence M Green's widely acclaimed novel, SHADOW OF ASHLAND, Leo Nolan went to Ashland, Kentucky in 1984 to search for his mother's lost brother. He found not only his uncle, but a wife and child for himself. Now it is the late 1990's and his stepson, Adam, wants to track down and meet the father who abandoned him before he was born. Leo figures maybe he ought to find him first, just to check him out. Jeanne and Leo both want the best for Adam; they are also trying to have a child together late in life. These two story lines interwine and reinforce each other in the lyrical and affecting new novel.

Review quote

"[A] compact, quietly thoughtful, emotionally compelling novel . . . this is the third tale concerning the Radey family of Toronto (the others are" Shadow of Ashland" and "A Witness to Life") to take us on both an outward journey and an interior expedition, this time into the heart of the relationship between father and son. . . . It takes a special writer to delineate the complexities of blood kinship while maintaining the reader's sympathy for each character. . . . Green expertly commingles the mythical past with the hard truths of the present in Leo Nolan's aspiration to be a good father and a good son in this heartfelt novel. It may not be fashionable, but it sure feels good." - "The Globe and Mail" (Toronto)
