about The Outskirts of Redemption
For Larry (“Buddy”) Torrence, childhood ended in 1965 when he was twelve, when his best friend, Daniel, killed himself. They were seventh-grade classmates at a newly integrated school in redneck southeast Texas. Buddy’s been a brooding loner since then, unable to stop blaming himself because he alone knows something chilling about Daniel’s death. It’s a stunning secret that he dared not tell anyone back then — not his parents, not the beautiful young psychologist he’s infatuated with, and certainly not the police and school authorities investigating this perplexing case. Nine years have gone by, and twenty-one-year-old Buddy is finally ready to reveal the truth and seek forgiveness.
Come along on this emotional ride into the Sixties and Seventies, a fascinating time filled with remarkable social changes, and see what secrets lie at The Outskirts of Redemption.
