Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Dennis Phillips, a noted poet, has recently turned his talents to fiction with the publication of HOPE. This, his first novel, is a work of two intertwining stories: one of a monk lured to an isolated island, the other of a contemporary man who first imagines himself imprisoned on an unknown island and later finds himself in a real island paradise, where "hope" is restored. Both stories represent kinds of imprisonment and torture, the first based on historical events, the second on the psychological confusion of the character. What Phillips ultimately reveals is that beyond the horrors and everyday despair of living there is always the possibility of redemption, of hope and the salve of love in human life.
