Описание

In this epic tale of friendship and loss from the author of The Sugar Men, fate pushes childhood friends to opposite sides of a terrible war — but is forgiveness always possible?

Ukraine, 1923. On a small farm, two boys are born within days of each other, both Ukrainian, one Jewish. Mykhail and Asher grow up inseparable, together finding friendship, adventure and escape from the harshness of Russian rule. But after Asher’s family flees to Warsaw, their worlds are torn to shreds by the Second World War.

The war brings cruelty to both boys. Although Asher finds love in Warsaw, the city is far from the haven his family sought; meanwhile Mykhail becomes a victim of the bitter struggle for Ukraine. But worse follows, in the shape of the Treblinka death camp. There, both men must obey orders, and both find their morals compromised and their souls tortured.

The inhuman horrors they witness cast long shadows. Many years later, their paths cross once more, and each man must confront the legacy of his actions. When the darkest of secrets can no longer be kept hidden, can their friendship survive the final reckoning?

Об авторе

Ray Kingfisher cut his writing teeth with many prize-winning short stories, the best of which are contained in 'Tales of Loss and Guilt', sixteen stories ranging from thrillers to comedies to dramas. Two of these, 'Guilt's Beady Eye' and 'The Lucky One', are available as standalone short stories, which are usually free. The novels Ray has gone on to write are also wide-ranging in genre. His debut novel was 'Matchbox Memories', a bittersweet comedy drama dealing with Alzheimer's, estranged families and long hidden secrets. (That's right - a comedy about Alzheimer's disease.) He followed this up with 'Slow Burning Lies', a dark and twisting psychological thriller about a man haunted by nightmares. His third novel, 'Easy Money', was a ribald comic farce about a man who stumbles upon half a million pounds in used notes. His most recent two novels are both themed around the Holocaust and its long-lasting effects. 'The Sugar Men', is about an elderly woman who survived Bergen-Belsen as a child, and traces her as she revisits the scene later in life in an attempt to come to terms with her memories. It's essentially a novel based on the short story 'The Lucky One'. 'Rosa's Gold' concerns a troubled young girl who stumbles upon the war memoirs of an old man who survived Auschwitz, and examines the effect his words have on her own life. Ray hopes to write more thrillers and a third Holocaust novel in the future, but his next two novels will both be comedies which break new ground in radical silliness. Hopefully both will be released in 2015. Ray lives in Hampshire, UK, and welcomes any feedback (positive or negative) his readers might wish to leave at: raykingfisher@gmail.com.
