About the Book
His father´s last words were scathing,"You dimwitted bastard." Four years later, scarred and missing a leg, James McKay returns from World War II to the needs of the family farm. Insistently he draws the reader into the tangled strands of his days and nights beset by the memory of a young man he killed and entranced by a woman who could not return his love.
