Cliff Schrage anoints a grateful reader with the notion that a writer is one to restore the ravaged body of the world. The world here is that of Silas Dillon, an abandoned, tragic youth... one passing through his dark time. I come upon this rarest of novels... this synthesis of life’s perplexing nature. I must conclude: this study of human nature, its journey through time, deserves a wide, wide readership. VINCE CLEMENTE - American poet, biographer, editor, Professor Emeritus- Stony Brook University

About the Author:

Besides being a published novelist (A Fruitful Field and Silas Dillon of Cary County) a published poet (Broken Prose, Spoken Poems) and essayist; besides having served as a chaplain of a parochial high school for six years, teaching high school English for twenty-nine years, chairing an English department for two years, coaching high school soccer for ten years, holding a Master’s degree, serving as a youth leader for two years, Cliff is the father of eight children- two biological and six adopted (foreign and domestic), and has been a foster father for seven years to six foster children, experiencing many of the frustrations of working with the bureaucracy of the foster care and family court systems in New York City. He’s been engaged in one lengthy court struggle over one child’s custody. He has also encountered the trauma of losing a child following all the jarring experiences of an enduring terminal illness.

Cliff, with his wife Sherry of thirty-six years, has grown acquainted with parenting, with adoption, with foster care, and with family court in New York, which is somewhat representative of most states; and he’s become concerned about harmful flaws in the system, especially to its children.
