Gone in the blink of an eye-Mike Moyer's whole family-mother, father, brother and sister. How can he face this devastating loss while trying to care for the dairy farm and land by himself? To add insult to injury, Ralph thinks he can w take possession of Mike's land, w that the Moyers are gone. Why t? His father should have had it in the Oklahoma Land Run anyway. Ralph's grudge and hatred puts Mike in prison. In turn, Mike hates God and believes he is God's trash. Only Mary, Mike's cousin, can console him--his only love. They'd even kissed a few times . . . but she is his cousin. How can anything good come from this? Not just ather feel-good vel, it depicts the downward spiral of hatred--holding grudges and bittnerness--and God's grace that can reverse it, in the blink of an eye. Comments about A Victim of Hate .Characterization is strong. I could see and feel the emotions of Mike and Mary, struggle with them through prison, and desire a happy ending. .Your Kansas voice carried throughout, describing the dialect of the Midwestern area without using hokey phrases or downgrading our people. Dialogue is especially strong. .Ralph was the perfect villain, nasty, yet human; I liked how you softened his character toward the end. .If I read this book while in prison, I kw I would leave with hope and kwledge of a trade.
