The sacrifice : a novel

Wiseman, Adele.

Toronto : Penguin Random House Canada, c2017.

411 p ; 21 cm.

The Sacrifice is a haunting depiction of one family and its often tragic attempts to come to terms with a new life in a new country. It is a moving, almost biblical story of a father possessed by his hope for his only son; of a son who rebels against his father's ideals, yet sacrifices himself to preserve what his father most prizes; and of a grandson who must reconcile the flaws in his inheritance.
