History becomes personal for one college freshman in Michael Fridgen’s extraordinary new novel, The Iron Words.
Riley Hunter appears to live the dream, with plenty of friends, money, and a coveted position on his university’s hockey team.
But inwardly, Riley still struggles to come to terms with his guilt over a dark past that left his former best friend and teammate paralyzed.
When he learns he’s about to fail sociology, Riley agrees to his teacher’s special assignment in a desperate attempt to save his grade: assist a ninety-year-old Holocaust survivor at his home and see what he can learn.
As the true story about his elderly new charge unfolds, Riley learns that the man spent time in a World War II concentration camp because of his sexuality, not his religion.
Soon Riley evolves from a naïve young freshman into a compassionate young man who finally learns to take control of his own life through the inspiration of a man who lost control of his.
