My estimation of Amazon.ca books has just risen by 100% with the inclusion of this great Canadian book on its list of offerings! (Sorry, I know too many exclamation marks isn't good writing but...I'm THAT excited to find this book here!!!). Although this is not a newly published novel it deserves to be widely read and to be added to literature lists in highschools and universities for its diamond-brilliant craftsmanship.
Green has a style like no one else and can say more with 3 words that most people can in 100 pages. Although known most famously in the Sci-Fi realm, Terrence M. Green's writing in the trilogy set that completes (or perhaps STARTS) with St. Patrick's Bed is masterful. Not only are his characters compelling and finely drawn, the plots themselves are wonderfully thought out and set down.

All I can say to Mr. Green is 'Thank you and ....MORE PLEASE' and to all the readers out there - do yourself a favour and READ THIS BOOK.....and when you do let's just hope Amazon also will have 'St. Patrick's Bed' and "Shadow of Ashland" on offer as I proudly do on my bookshelf to recommend to all my friends and to be read over and over. You're going to want to know all about the characters populating each book. And, if you have any aspirations of ever being a writer, now is the time to.....GO GREEN!!!!

A gourmet feast for the famished reader. June 1 1999
By Gayla Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Terrance M. Green has delivered a crisp, profound, articulate and genuine look at life's journey. Through Martin Radey we learn of youthful mistakes, missed opportunities, and painful choices that haunt unto death, but are buoyed by the promise of redemption and second chances. Upon his death, he surveys his life and the life of his family, and the look is insightful, sometimes painful, always real and recognizable. Mr. Green has a writing style that flows in it's unique cadence, drawing his reader in at first sentence. Though short in page, his book is long in quality, style and substance. It must be read morsel by morsel and not devoured, as the reader's appetite is appeased by succulent descriptions and zestful words. Dessert is the truths realized in the story. In short, " A Witness to Life" is a gourmet feast. Bon Appetite!!
This is a fine story.. March 6 2000
By Jack in Oswego - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of those rare books you're really glad you bought because it's worth reading twice. Buy this book! Definately one of the best I've read in a long time. This is what great storytelling is all about.
Evocative, and beautifully written May 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It's hard when a book is set in the town you grew up in to know whether you are reacting to the book on its own merits or simply because all the familiar places have a special resonance for you. But I think anyone would enjoy this terrific book, even if they've never been to Toronto. Greene's characters will keep you glued to the page.
