Description
A revolution is a complicated thing, Rock Kindle knows -- especially when it happens in your own family. Rock wants to be loyal to his father, whose "life lessons" are often harsh, sometimes cruel. And he tries to be loyal to his mother, who retreats from the world more and more every day, whose weakness leaves Rock torn between anger and pity for her. So he's suspicious of his older brother, Cliff's, dark hints at escaping, rebelling against their father's tyranny. Why does Cliff need to start a revolution? Why can't they all just stay together as family?But when their friend, Liza, escapes from her own troubled situation, and as tensions escalate at home, Rock finds himself forced to take sides. He must sort out for himself whether he is a patriot -- or a traitor.With unforgettable, sharply drawn characters and a taut, dramatic narrative, Adele Griffin's third novel draws us into the complexity of family relationships, offering no easy answers -- only hope.
