A Matter of Will
By Rod Carley
-A reading from his new novel –
Will Crosswell is a wolf in wolf’s clothing. From relationships to acting, his life has been one shipwreck after another. After a life altering AA encounter with an unconventional minister, he enrolls in divinity school and has to survive his most challenging escapade yet – a forty day fast in a fishing village in the middle of the Canadian winter.
As he struggles to keep from freezing and starving, he is confronted by a series of strange events, not the least of which is an encounter with Billy Blight, a bigger-than-life Newfoundlander, headed for perdition. And, ultimately moving, A Matter of Will, is the tall tale of a middle-age, maybe minister and his journey to find a mighty purpose.
