The strength of loyalty among friends in contrast to the utter disinterest shown by some members of the family, the blunt ignorant stigma involved creates a well rounded observation. There are some fantastically humorous parts to counter balance the poignant moments.
Sam grows up in a deprived area, has zero support from his father .. but thankfully his Gran and friend Thomas the bookseller, who takes on the role of surrogate parent to a degree have some very wise advice. I absolutely adored Gran!
This is a tale of exploration, coming of age, learning to be true to oneself as well as others and above all else love. While it definitely has an LGBT dominance don’t let that sway your decision to read it (if it’s not your genre) because the amount of pleasure gained from reading The Rainbow Player and the thought provoking text makes it so worthwhile. It’s an ambassador for love, kindness and acceptance of our fellow humans no matter what their sexuality, race or status is.
And just to reiterate I can’t abide football (more of an NFL fan!) but that doesn’t hinder the flow of the story it is all relevant and after all it’s only a game but has a significant role.
My thanks to David, Rachel at Authoright and Whiteley Publishing for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
Sammy Hutchington, England footballer, finds himself facing a dilemma that could rip apart everything he has ever worked to achieve, with a wonderful host of characters to see him through … or drag him down.
With wit and emotion permeating every page, this was a wonderful read. The plot was strong, the writing hilarious and poignant in equal measure, and the characterisation dripping in realism. This is a book about acceptance, finding yourself, and being true to your values. It is funny, it is sad, and it is wonderful. Highly, highly recommended!
