About this product
- DescriptionFrom the author of <i>The Crazy Man</i> In a small prairie town like Argue, Saskatchewan, everyone kws everybody else s business. It s common kwledge that the Loney family has been barely hanging on, but when the Loney children s father George dies in a drunken stupor and their stepmother takes off with a traveling Bible salesman, it looks as though the children are done for. Who s to save them when everyone is coping with their own problems the lingering Depression and the loss of the town s young men to the Second World War? Under the watchful eye of their ghostly parents and through the small kindnesses of a few neighbors, but mostly by dint of their own determination and ingenuity, the Loney children survive. I'll Be Watching is an extremely powerful story of children at risk because of adult hypocrisy, indifference, self-interest, and outright immorality, all cloaked in a self-righteous exterior.
