The Grave and the Figure Eight
By
Kenneth Tucker

At the end of the First World War, young Terence Garth, ailing in body and soul, returns to Western Kentucky to learn that his wealthy uncle and benefactor has married Isabel Fletcher, a much younger woman. Despite better intentions, Terence and Isabel give into to their mutual longings and find themselves reenacting a classic myth of lust, betrayal, outlawry, alcoholism, violence, murder, and possible redemption!

"Kenneth Tucker expertly tells a story of character weakness and the anguish provoking ripple effect that individual choices have on others." --Steve Flairty, Kentucky Mothly.

The Story of Tristan and Isolde

A revised and expanded edition will be available in early 2012.
