Moving tale ell told

I am sitting in front of my fireplace with gentle tears flowing down my face. The story of George Bellamy, his grandson, and the many other characters of the Avalon community is compelling and deeply moving. I had thought it would be morbid and clinging, but found instead a gripping, thrilling mystery, and many twists and turns in this elegant gentleman's battle with a vicious medical reality. It is the best of this author's stories to date and well worth reading. I highly recommend
