Boyhood adventures. The epitome of freedom. Hidden trails through dark woods. Fat fish in cold creeks. Lazy days and lost afternoons. A secret stage, alive and whispering, where three adolescent boys can bluff and play and pretend. A place where they can stay just beyond the steadily reaching hands of time. Idyllic.
And yet a shadow lurks. Felt but still unseen.
One day these three boys set out on a long anticipated overnight fishing trip. Destiny is about to intervene. It arrives in a car-full of shimmering girls. What happens next will tip the boys off a ledge they never even knew existed. For one of them the world will never be the same again.
A story featuring one of the central characters from KJ Steele’s masterful novel, THE BIRD BOX, IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE is a stunning tale of innocence on the verge of change.
“Every once in a while a book comes along with the ‘wow’ factor” said the blog Minding Spot about KJ Steele’s first novel, No Story to Tell. KJ Steele provides “wow” with everything she writes, whether it’s the story of a woman rediscovering her passion or inmates in an asylum rediscovering their humanity.
