"Take my hand, I'm a stranger in Paradise" Song lyrics
A large, brutal looking man arrives at a lakeside village in Northern California. His arrival unleashes the prejudices and sexual fantasies of many of the locals.
John Faith is a quiet man, just looking for a place to be accepted and that he can call home.
Women solicit him, some men challenge him in order to prove their manhood and a slim few-accept him for what he is.
He's accused of murder, almost accused of being a pedophile and is actually a kind hearted, lonesome man.
I found the story unique and totally engrossing. It is cleverly plotted and each character is well described.
