All families have their strengths and weaknesses. For the Fosters, it was no different. Isaac, the patriarch of the Foster family, made his lot in life by enlisting in the military immediately after college. It was the quickest and most accessible way out of the tiny Midwestern town where he grew up. He served admirably through his young adulthood, bouncing around from place to place, overseas and domestically until fate brought him to a small Alabama town where he met Adrianne, the woman who would soon become his wife. Their romance was effortless, and things seemed to be going well, until the birth of their second child, a son, Jericho. Once Jericho arrived, nothing about the Foster family would ever be the same.
Follow Jericho through his boyhood as he faces numerous challenges from bullies in the schoolyard, to gang members in back allies, drug abuse, a life of crime, and multiple attempts to redeem himself. The journey is one full of heartbreak and an intimate glimpse into family dynamics with the nuances of raising a child who lives on the fringe edge of society.
To read more about Jericho and the rest of the Foster family:
“You can withstand anything, or so you think. But little by little you are chipped away until you fall down. So it was with the walls of Jericho, so it is with fictional character Jericho. He grew up facing a few challenges, yet overcame to be his own man. Some decisions aren’t easily made, some consequences beyond unfortunate; but you do what you have to do to survive. An impressive, intense new read by Rebecca MacCeile.” – K. Terry
