Judas Tree – Novella One  1. The Judas Tree Novellas

   (2 reviews)

Sometimes evil wears the garb of generosity and 'guidance,' and the young can sense this destructiveness around them. From ages ten to fourteen, Simon has his inherent goodness and resolve tested by the shady undercurrents within the small town where he is growing up. Will he come out on the other side of his adolescence as pure as he went into it? These five novellas will explore questions of faith and Simon's process of becoming a young man.

Ten-year-old Simon is being punished. He thinks hanging his classroom Madonna by a noose tied in the cord of the blinds was just a whim. But, as he stands alone in the empty classroom, recent events tell him otherwise.

 

**the protagonist encounters the victims and perpetrators of child-abuse, though he is not victimized himself**

Hi AC, in your comments in reply to my review of chap 2 of Judas Tree Novella one, about kids and instincts .. I think the biggest thing people forget about kids is that they are human, they are people and should be treated like that.

 


You shouldn't push them and they will ride the bus or walk to school alone when they are ready.. not when their parents are.

Thanks, Tim. Yes, I think you are right. Too often we fail to see our kids as the people in development that they are. I personally remember being a kid and thinking adults were talking down to me, and I know I can't be alone in that feeling.

 

Thanks again for all of your support
