About the Author

Michael Jasper is fascinated with exploring the places where the normal meets the strange. In pursuit of this fascination, he has published nine novels, a story collection, and over six dozen short stories, along with a digital comic with artist Niki Smith. He's also put together two how-to books about how to create digital comics (also with Niki Smith) and how to create and market digital books. In the past he's tried bartending, teaching junior high, painting houses, being a secret shopper, working construction, and many more jobs; he prefers fiction writing. For his day job, he works as a technical writer. He lives with his family in North Carolina, and his website is michaeljasper.net.

This is a personal favorite of mine among Michael Jasper's novels. It is a quiet, thoughtful, retelling of the parable of the prodigal son that takes place on a dairy farm in Iowa.

I was born on a dairy farm as well, so the story brought back memories, the good and bad memories of a farming life, and put me in that time and place once more.

Michael Jasper creates very real worlds and populates them with characters that belong there. William and John Koopman are the two sons. William remained on the farm and worked for his father, John left to make his way in Chicago, but returns from time to time when he's in trouble or needs money. The conflict between the two brothers, between their natures, their goals and dreams, between their different outlooks, is what drives this story.

Some novels shout at you and shock you. This novel does not. Instead, it whispers. Sometimes, a gentle novel is the most rewarding of all. I enjoyed this parable of the farming life and think you will too.
