Mr. Luse's luminous novel speaks of many things: our need for clarity, a "good death", what we choose to fixate on, entering into the suffering of others, and love.

I found the irresolution of the narrator concerning his love interest particularly engaging. The sort of on-again/off-again torture of one who cannot commit is something most of us have experienced both in our spiritual and temporal lives. There are those huge hinge moments on which large decisions are made and the resolution was satisfying.

I suspect than anyone over the age of 18 can find himself in this story of love, conflict, culture, faith and redemption. It doesn't preach, but it does elucidate. The author is a true wordsmith -- one is immersed in the story and swept along in the glory of truly excellent writing. When I grow up I want to be able to express myself half as well as William Luse. It seems a simple story . . . but it is truly everyman's story. I hope he continues to write and publish. I want more!

I really enjoyed reading this novel. I had a hard time putting it down because it allowed me to imagine myself as an eighteen year old kid again. It reminded me of the thoughts, emotions, feelings, and life questions that I experienced as I set out to experience the world on my own. It caused me to remember the girl that I was going to marry but didn't, and of the faith that I almost lost. I may be slightly partial to this book because the author was my composition professor in college. I can imagine him telling this story as I read it... "We'd been living in sin... her sin, not mine.." Classic Professor Luse!
