Nerone's character comes alive through Dr. Myers and his widow's narration of events leading to his death by firing squad by a partisan mob. Nerone's life in the small town is revealed gradually like clouds parting to reveal the sun. He is a British officer who disserts his post after a horrifying accident where he kills an infant and the parents. With a bullet in his shoulder he runs away to find love, peace and God. He eventually finds all three. --Vijay B. Kimar, et al at Amazon.com
