Book Review: The Betrayers by David Bezmozgis

The Betrayers

Did you ever read a book and have to reread it again and again to get all the nitty gritty of what the writer is saying. Although this book is fiction, it gives one pause to think about the reality of today in the Middle East and in Crimea of the former Soviet Union.

Great fiction inspires and David Bezmozgis characters make us think and think hard about all the paradigms that shape lives.  How others make choices that change lives?  Why do we make the choices we make?

We need to think harder about the choices we make.  We live in societies now that shoot from the hip. Maybe if we took the time, real time, to sift through and process through the range of outcomes we might make society and the world as a whole a better place instead of fearing, being feared, violent, and constantly warring.

Do you want to know more about The Betrayers? Peruse through a review written by Ian Singleton at Fiction Writers Review.

Autumn Grapes on the Vine


Autumn Grapes on the Vine.

A harvest just in time.

Too late a pick.

Ruining the wine.

Thrown into the pit to burn.


Finest of the wine.

First fruits.

Gardener's choice.

No magic charms work against them ---
just look at what God had done for His people!
