Vengeance is Sacred
Peter Healy's book, Vengeance is Sacred, is a compelling book with a sympathetic lead character Paolo, an Italian immigrant who comes to America in the early 1900's. Paolo is blessed or you could say burdened with a mystical power, Deva, which has seemingly been passed down from generation to generation,most recently from Paolo's grandfather to Paolo. The beginning chapters are highly descriptive of this transformation, with a Mandela disappearing from the grandfather's arm to Paolo. It is magical. Then the journey begins for Paolo. With simple yet detailed writing, Healy takes the reader on an epic, historical adventure, with love, violence and much more. Paolo meets the strong Maria, who captures his heart. Readers who love historical fiction will not be disappointed with this captivating book by Peter Healy, which manages to be both inspiring and realistic.
