5.0 out of 5 stars HONORABLE SON, September 23, 2011

This review is from: Son of a Ditch (Paperback)
Son of a Ditch
At the end of an eight year tour of duty with the Air Force, along with a break up with his live in boyfriend, Colby Dawson decides to return to his hometown and fulfill his career dreams on his own terms. However, Colby never dreamed that renewing his friendship with Kyle McCoy would lead to a loving lifetime relationship.

Son of a Ditch is book two of the Home series. The well written exciting plot demonstrate heartwarming emotion, political corruption, family turmoil and hidden sexuality issues. In particular, the storyline exhibits that sexuality is not the sum total of a person, merely a part of the mind, body and soul that is mankind's humanity. The setting is towns in East Tennessee. The characters are believable, as well as well matched in personality. Colby is the youngest son in an affluent family. He is intelligent, hardworking and compassionate. Out of the four Dawson sons, Colby is most like their stubborn father when it comes to Colby's future. Colby refuses to live at home, as well as allow his parents to pay for his delayed college education. Nevertheless, when Colby's sexuality is revealed, his loving parents fully supported Colby's choice in a partner.

Kyle is a local deputy sheriff; he is expected to run for sheriff when his father retires. Because of this public office, Kyle has kept his sexuality hidden from his father, or so he thought. Kyle is surprised to learn that his father and the Dawson family not only accept his relationship with Colby but are proud of both of them.

The drama scenario is an interesting twist of racism. The governor, who is black, is jealous of Moorestown's mayor, who is also black, in addition to being fully supported by the white residents. In his quest to demean the mayor in the political arena, the governor unwittingly draws attention to his own history of dirty dealings. William Neale has created a captivating and thoroughly enjoyable saga.
