5.0 out of 5 stars By His Own Blood,
This review is from: By His Own Blood (Paperback)
It's hard to imagine a more gut-wrenching experience for a family to endure than that of the Doc Montandon family. His son, John, has brilliantly blended together the tragedy of his father's suffering with a nostalgic look at life in rural Texas in the mid-to-late 1900's. It is a story of hard work, sacrifice, broken dreams, realized dreams, ignorance, discrimination, fear, and finally suffering and love.
I remember the rumors and innuendo surrounding Doc's infection with the AIDS virus, but only when this book was written did I understand the full magnitude of the circumstances. Congratulations to John for telling this story.
