Staff Reviews


A dying priest reflects on the tryst he had with another young man as a student in Rome. Meanwhile, his niece debates leaving her husband and children for an artist with whom she’s fallen in love. Rader’s writing is immersive, and he's a writer's writer, with an eye for pinpointing the overlooked detail that will draw you into each scene. You’ll feel like you’re living moment to moment along with these characters, their memories and imaginations fully imparted as they recall the past and plot out their futures. Rader explores the complexities of the guilt that accompanies happiness and the regret that accompanies duty in this lovely novel about the choices people make through their years and the unlived lives they leave behind.
