Valley of Oblivion

· Strange Theater Book 3 · Jonathan Malone

About this ebook

Nineteen sixty-seven was the "Summer of Love" for Hippies in San Francisco and 1968 the "Magic Summer" in the American hinterland. But Columbus Mississippi during this time is more of a nightmare. Not just because of the social unrest of the Civil Rights era and anti-war protests. At least it is for seven-year-old Little Jesse; when his parents die, and he goes to live with his shell-shocked uncle, newly returned from two tours in the Vietnam War. Jesse’s namesake, Uncle Jesse, gradually manages his stress, and the two survivors grow closer. But the light at the end of the vertiginous tunnel of trauma through which they are staggering leads to a surprising discovery.
