Will Morning Ever Come: A novel

When Montreal party boy Kyle Regan, resurfaces for grandmother Dot's funeral in the tiny village of Lakefield, he comes face to face with his abusive father Russell. A boozer, Kyle has messed up his life engaging in risky behavior in the city.

It all looks bleak until a trio of Dot's confidantes intervene and share a scrapbook of cherished mementos with Kyle; unearthing tales of love, betrayal and family darkness, all told through a captivating heroine who may well have been ahead of her time. As Kyle becomes engrossed in untangling Dot's secrets, he learns that forgiveness may be the only way to bring about peace between him and his father Russell.

In this postcard to Montreal, Will Morning Ever Come is a moving, often amusing, coming of age story, about the complex bond between father and son. Comparable's would be a gay themed Secrets of Ya Ya Sisterhood, Fried Green Tomatoes, Piano Man's Daughter and The Prince of Tides.
