John Lynch has found his literary voice in this life story of disadvantaged soul, Billy McErlane. Having a harlot for a mother doesn't make life easy and nor does going to jail at 14, but when he is reunited with his childhood sweetheart, peace enters Billy's heart. Then fate deals a wrecking blow. The book shows Billy through his own eyes and words as he learns to forgive, let go of the bad things in life, accept with grace the good things and finally reach out to others. It's a coming-of-age book that begins in tragedy and ends in hope. A bittersweet story of love, loss, and one young man's refusal to accept what life offers.
