About the Author

The author of this family saga has a unique perspective of what helps families. Having visited thousands of homes in professional contexts he is not jaded in asserting that there are no perfect families, but there are multitudes of families who are adroit at concealing the unflattering while parading what they believe to be commendable. He accepts that today, much is beyond the capacities of families who struggle, but there are precepts that if understood and honored, may at least alleviate some of their burdens. Reaching back objectively, to his Irish Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother of African ancestry, the author is deliberate in making key assumptions that the ethics of plantocracy resonate with our time and that intergenerational abuse and kinship disregard exacerbate our situation. Told in the style of a participant-observer, examining certain decisions made and their tragic consequences, yet the writer skillfully managed and interspersed the story with very amusing episodes and folklore.
