Customer Review

on 3 February 2014
What happened to Uncle Rory? That is the essence of this story, and the after effects of his sudden disappearance on his extended family. He was a much loved person, who traveled widely and appeared unannounced to his family when it suited him. Prentice (his nephew - and son of a schoolmaster) is the storyteller, who tries to explain the effect Uncle Rory had on the family. He was much loved, and held up as as hero to the younger members of the family. Prentice tries to find out what happened to Rory, with not a lot of help from his family. Prentice, at University, grows up fast, but never loses track of his goal - to find Uncle Rory. Friends come and go, but several stick around to help Prentice with his search. A book I read years ago, and watched the TV adaptation, which I enjoyed - fairly true to the book. I enjoyed this as a leisurely read, savouring every twist and turn of the plot. A good read from an exceptional story teller.
