Hi and welcome to my blogs! I love to read and write so this blog is all about my love of books and writing stories about my feelings and family. I am married to my best friend Steve, and we have 4 fur children. Please leave me a comment to let me know that you stopped by! You may also contact me at k9kutter64(at)yahoo(dot)com.
Abused at home and
bullied at school, young Jayrod Nash steals away on a freight train with
a vow never to return. His best friend tags along, but his heart’s not
in it. They meet up with a hobo named Farley, who offers protection in
exchange for obedience, and soon learn he’s running too.
Night Train” is a novel about the struggle of innocence against
brutality, written with powerful characters who allow no commentary from
the author. Together they paint a picture of life as it exists too
Carl Purdon weaves a tale that takes the reader through
the full gamut of emotions, and leaves them feeling as if they have
known the Nash family all their lives. Perhaps they have.
This was a great book! The story is set in rural Mississippi, in the present day. Poor Jayrod cannot do anything right in the eyes of his father. His mother just quietly stands by and lets the abuse go on. Jayrod plans his escape carefully, and executes it with perfection. I was sad that the story ended, but was pleased with the ending itself.
