from the cover blurb - Let me tell you about our brother. The fourth Dunbar boy named Clay. Everything happened to him. We were all of us changed through him. This is a story told inside out and back to front.
The Dunbar boys were wild - all five lived in the moment, fought among themselves, fought anyone who challenged them, and lived by their own rules. Their sainted mother had passed and their father walked out on them. They survived.
And now - Clay. He's quiet, has secrets, is the smartest, fastest, and yearns for more.
He builds a bridge - to and for family, for the past, for greatness, for sins. He builds literally and figuratively. The father is back. Does anyone forgive?
This was a challenging book to read. I had to get into the rhythm of the back to past, and the hints of the future. I really liked Clay and he kept me connected and interested.
