I came across this story through a review someone wrote recommending it, and I too highly recommended it. A series of three novellas, it is not very long, but oh boy, it is a wonderful treat.
You can pop across to gayauthors, read the reviews, and read the story. In brief it is about a nine year old boy, and the world as seen through the eyes of a child. The growing up confronting difficult and evil situations, it is both sad and hopefull at the same time. I can tell you that the author captures the boy’s view of the world so perfectly that you look out through his eyes. It will remind you of being nine years old, and is beautifully written.
