A human tragedy poised in historical 19th century England, this tale extends far beyond the ordinary in the scope of dreams, desires, and delusions. M. Shane Willbanks exposes in one family, over three generations, the collection of tragedies only found in the most fragile of human existence - addiction, depression, self-loathing, and flawed perceptions - those found deep in intimate relations. And yet, hope is everywhere and nowhere, much as it is with life. In the midst of the story, under the easily observed actions, lies, shame and guilt, anger and forgiveness, redemption and restoration emerge, much as life holds for all of us daily. A Trilogy.
