As a child, Solono suffers through a tragic event and has to quickly adjust to his new life — being raised by the President of Paraguay. Even with the responsibilities of running an anguished country and caring for his own wife and daughter, President Louis Silvay adopts Solono as his own and treats him with genuine love, teaching him as any committed father would. After being raised in royalty, filled with love and compassion, Solono learns the truth about the tragedy he experienced as a child. Does Solono forgive and forget the past? T. Duffin’s first novel, While The Blood Runs Warm, is an unsparing reflection on the powerful love between father and son, hurt, and the strong task of forgiving.
