Rooks at Dusk
On the Other Side of Despair, What Is Left to Believe In?
Ray Young, an experienced Christian leader, has been married for almost thirty years. But his once-vibrant faith, like his marriage, is steadily fading, and relations with his only son Ollie, a struggling stand-up comedian, are increasingly strained. Facing a looming crisis of faith, Ray begins an anguished, escapist affair, only for Ollie to discover his father's infidelity.
Confronted by his actions, Ray has one chance to rescue the life that is crumbling around him. But when tragedy strikes, it seems all hope of redemption is gone . . . Rooks at Dusk delicately explores questions of grace and forgiveness in a world where not everything can be mended, but where there is still reason for hope.
Chick Yuill is a speaker and writer with a growing passion to bring matters of faith out of the narrow confines of the religious ghetto and into the wider area of public discourse. He has been married to Margaret for forty-eight years and they have two adult daughters.
