First I was intrigued, then enthralled, then anxious. At the end I felt sadness and awe. The story is riveting.

The complex power dynamics in this story are fascinating and heartbreaking. Reminds me of relationships between white children and enslaved adults in the antebellum South.

A deeply moving story. The father is determined to pass on the legacy of pride and hatred; the son tries to make atonement and achieve his own redemption through the grace of an act of compassion. Well done.
