WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN
Genre: Mainstream, Multicultural
In When the Sun Goes Down, well-rounded characters share a bond: they all want to know the whereabouts and contents of Leon’s will. It’s worthwhile to read along as interesting characters find love amidst the drama. There is a remarkable balance between greed, selfishness, spite, honesty, integrity and religion here that makes the unfolding of long-held secrets unpredictable, and thus captivating. The nearly fairy-tale ending is also refreshing.
Widower Leon Farrell’s mean-spirited act of hiding his will sets the stage for the shift in his family’s dynamics upon his death. Edgar is a gambler who needs his inheritance to save his life. His younger siblings, Gunther and Shirley, are successful in their own pursuits. Gunther’s new housekeeper, Mirna, is a Christian whose advice is as good as her cooking. Between the siblings, Mirna and her best friend and a private investigator brought in to help find the will, there’s plenty of excitement and twists to keep everyone on their toes.
