"Take the road less traveled, my son. Always. No exceptions."

These are Hannah's words to her child, spoken to reveal a higher truth of what it takes to live a life of meaning. Most importantly, they are words meant to keep a child away from harm and danger. But one day, mother and son are visited by an old family friend whose arrival brings with it the potential to uncover dark family secrets always intended to stay hidden.

Sparse and simply told, Child of Gilead, is author Douglas S. Reed's award-winning second novel (Booklife Prize in Fiction-Publisher's Weekly Grand Winner 2020) and is a modern-day parable that seeks to answer the seemingly unanswerable truth, "Do you know me?"
