If one wanted to identify a theme in the books I enjoy, it will most likely be Reconciliation. People finding ways to put aside their differences and come to a closer understanding of each other. It’s a theme dominant in TSL author John Samson’s work: Powerless and Shaka Are Dead (don’t forget The Good Vicar).
Some other books I’ve enjoyed and others I will look to read include:
Harper Lee – To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman
Antonia Hayes – Relativity
This post on revenge is worth a read – retribution = the opposite of reconciliation.
