"Through Shadows Slow" by Abraham Boyarsky Available for Pre-Order 20% off
Daniel is in the twilight of his life, tormented by doubts, of cuckolding, an illegitimate son, his late wife’s ‘dissolute’ nature, the horrors of war and the inanity of all human activity. A miraculous childhood survivor of the Nazi prison camps, Daniel is shipped to Canada after the war, a refugee and an orphan. Processed in Montreal and diagnosed with TB, Daniel is sent to the renowned Sainte-Agathe hospital in the Laurentian Mountains where the clear air might benefit his health. During his recovery, Daniel meets his future wife, Gilla, and must deal with memories of the war, the promises he’s made to dead relatives and how to fit the happiness and love he finds in Sainte-Agathe amidst all the horror he’s suffered. Driven by insurmountable convictions about Gilla’s infidelity, he very nearly ruins their lives. Now at the end of it all, Daniel must make a pilgrimage to Masada and memory in the hope of finding truth and redemption.
