Description of Romey's Place by James Calvin Schaap

"What's it like having an old man who's a saint?" The question came from the depths of Romey Guttner's troubled soul. It was as honest as the hot sun that beat down on him and his best friend, Lowell, as they picked beans that unforgettable summer in the late fifties. They were just boys, one the son of the town's pillar of faith and one the neglected child of a man whose anger spilled onto everyone in his path. Despite their disparate upbringings, Romey and Lowell were like brothers, inseparable in their pursuit of adventure. But events were brewing that would force them to confront the reality of their differences for the first time. With keen perception and a simple style, James Calvin Schaap renders a coming-of-age tale about friendship, fathers and sons, and, most of all, the grace that saves us from the darkest places. "A novel of deceptive ease and simplicity. Here the conflicts are dramatic, powerful, and complex. Schaap knows the gravity of common things."--Walter Wangerin, author, The Book of God "Romey's Place is rich in real-life drama, and its depth will enrich any reader."--Christian Retailing "Romey's Place captivated me from beginning to end."--John Timmerman, professor of English, Calvin College James Calvin Schaap, a professor of English at Dordt College and president of the Chrysostom Society, is the award-winning author of twenty-two books. He lives in Sioux Center, Iowa.
