EPILOGUE by Will Boast
What if by age 24 you had lost your mother, father and only sibling? What if you then also discovered that your father had been married before he married your mother and that you had two half brothers? And what if you came upon this information after going through your father's papers after his death? This is exactly what happened to Will Boast. After losing his whole family it was consoling to know he had two half brothers but awkward to meet the brothers and have to reveal that his father had never mentioned them. It was as if they had no longer existed for their father. Will had many unanswered questions he would have liked to ask his mother and father surrounding this secrecy. He also experienced a whole different feeling about his youth. This revealing book shows the courage and strength Will had in coming to terms with his changing reality. I thoroughly enjoyed this well written memoir.
