Ben learns that the man was not really his father, and sets out for Ireland to learn the truth about his family and his past. His odyssey thrusts him into the middle of a bloody struggle between soldiers of the newly formed Irish Republican Army and savage British troops known as the Black and Tans. As Ben struggles to understand his origins, he must also struggle to survive the war that comes hunting for him across the blazing green of Irish summer fields. The Promise of Light brings to life a time when ancient prophecies came true and patriotism found its voice at the end of a shotgun barrel. Set against the rugged beauty of the Irish landscape and a country's fight for independence, Paul Watkins has written an unforgettable novel of one man's search for identity

Stand before your God : an American schoolboy in England by Paul Watkins( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of seven, Paul Watkins was roughly transplanted from his home in Rhode Island to England's Dragon School. He was greeted by a delegation of bullies who, in time, would become his friends and whose rules would become his own. For at Dragon, and later at Eton, "there was no middle ground. You could not go here and come out not caring one way or the other. You had to stand before your God and commit." In this enthralling and sometimes harrowing memoir, the acclaimed author of The Promise of Light gives us a masterly companion to such classics as Brideshead Revisited and A Separate Peace. Here are the masters who paddle boys for small infractions and then offer them sweets; the seniors who pamper pretty favorites and subject all others to humiliating servitude; the deep friendships and sudden, devastating betrayals. Above all, here is the exhilaration of a boy discovering own capacities for learning and creativity, in a book that conveys with astonishing insight the pangs of growing up.
