A Family Madness

A Family Madness

Inspired by a true incident, this powerful and disturbing novel focuses on Rudi Kabbel, a survivor of Nazi-occupied Belorussia, and Terry Delaney, a young Australian rugby player who falls in love with Kabbel’s daughter. With the optimism and innocence of those unscathed by war, Delaney gropes to understand Kabbel’s outlook on life and all too slowly grasps its implications.
