Book Title: Conversations With a Dead Man Author: Doug Lucas Published By: Great Minds Think Aloud Recommended Age: 18+ Reviewed By: Lee-Ann Graff-Vinson Blog Reviewed For: Great Minds Think Aloud Rating: 5
The dead take the past with them to the grave, leaving the living with unanswered questions and a longing for more time. There is always a wish for one more day; another chance at goodbye.
A lifetime of knowledge and history come alive for a man who no longer props up his rifle. The graveside may not be the most comfortable place to have secrets revealed, but a young gentleman finds himself drawn to one particular marker. John Wesley Elder lived his life by one motto ‘help others when you can’. He shares his tales of truth and wisdom with the young visitor, ever hopeful the tragedies and lessons of his life will not be in vain as his tale is told. And, true to his word, Mr. Elder still helps out when he can.
Doug Lucas has again marvelled his readers. Author of The Good Servant, Mr. Lucas fascinates and intrigues with his first person narrative, Conversations With a Dead Man. The writing is enticing and fresh. The character speaks to you, drawing you in to his world of factful fiction. You are compelled to read on, unlocking secrets of the past, and perhaps learning a few things along the way. Another fantastic creation from Mr. Lucas!
