Lost and Found, written by Ron Rink, is a memoir wrapped up in a novel. The story of Ron’s life is grippingly and heartbreakingly true although he has fictionalised the characters in the book.
Ron is publishing his book chapter by chapter on his blog at www.wecould2.com and delivering new chapter notifications by email.
The story of Ron’s life makes for compelling reading. I have found myself on a swingboat of emotion as I have read. What is so remarkable to me is that the Ron I know (and adore) lived all of this. The Ron of today gives no hint of being the Ron of the street fighting days (and I shall say no more for fear of ruining the plot). It highlights for me that whilst we may sometimes walk a very uneven and uphill path every step is creating another stitch in the rich tapestry of our individual lives.
Ron’s tapestry is multi coloured, warm, wise and glorious.
At one point Ron stopped writing. I was fearful that the book wouldn’t be finished. Now I am sure it will be. There are too many who want to know how he got from where he was to where he is today.
