It’s summertime—and the reading’s easy
Murder, love and faith—on the tip of the Cape
The second novel by Bay State native, Patry Francis, Orphans of Race Point (2014), is a character-driven narrative set in the close-knit Portuguese community of Provincetown. The story follows two close friends, Gus Silva and Hallie Costa, whose lives are intertwined across several decades. Silva’s life is marred by tragedy; as a child he is orphaned, and as an adult he is accused of murder.
Costa faces tragedies of her own, including an accident that sends the friends spinning off in different directions, only to come back together when it matters most. Strongly recommended by Uminowicz, the suspenseful tale is told in seven parts by alternating voices and explores the true meaning of faith, love, and friendship. Paperback, 544 pages.
