The Outcast tells the story of a man, recently released from prison, recalling his life as a boy who refused to accept the polite lies of a tightly knit community that rejects love in favour of appearances.
❚ “This is a heavy novel. Weighty in themes, drama and suspense. Not for the light hearted.” – Rachel
❚ “This book is a little depressing – the main character has an awfully tragic loss to bear and a father who offers him no real love. Lewis Aldridge has been very well developed and I felt a lot of sympathy for him. The weird maternal-sexual tension is nicely disturbing and adds to the tension. An enjoyable read for me.” – Jo
