Review: The Gendarme by Mark Mustian
This powerfully written book is so emotionally moving, it embodies the indominability of the human spirit and the power of forgiveness. The Gendarme evoked such vivid images, I felt as if I were watching Emmet's dreams and memories on a movie screen. This is just the briefest of synopses trying not to include any spoilers, but I hope it at least piqued your interest and you will get a chance to read Emmet's narrative yourself. Although some of the incidents in the book are disturbing, I got so caught up in this story, I could not put the book down. 5*****
