Delivering VirtueeBook - 2015
Didier Rain is broke, lovesick, and just off a three-day whiskey binge. And yet, The Church of the Restructured Truth has been told in a vision that he's the man to fulfill their Holy Prophecy. He must deliver Virtue - a blue-eyed infant - 1,000 miles along the western pioneer trail to their prophet's stronghold as his child bride to be. Savages, zealots, and wildfire all stand in Rain's way, not to mention a list of Thou-shalt-nots designed to thwart any man's most basic comforts. But, there's something holy about the job - something, Rain suspects, that might just turn his sorry life toward a better path.In Delivering Virtue - Book One of the Didier Rain Epic - Brian Kindall takes the classic novel of the West and turns it on its head. Gritty humor and wit, pathos, and a cast of absurd and depraved characters all come together in an American Frontier world inspired by myth and legend, creating a surreal and disarmingly poignant adventure reviewers are calling a triumph of American Magical Realism.
