" Pure love, not recognized as such by most children, inexplicably grows as they mature and makes them strong fighters against traditions, bigotry, tyranny, and parents' wishes. Mankind's desires to live closer to Mother Nature than within the confines of a human society determined to continue to live in the glory of self-esteem and false pride are ultimately achieved by the principal people in this novel. Great lessons to live by are taught by an old man living on a farm. A child, in need of comfort, finds companionship and peace in the world of his imagination where everything becomes real. Strong belief in God vanishes when unexpected events change many lives. Spoiled youth, like bull with lustful desires, inject poison in a town of peace loving people.
