“This book is much more than a well-written novel; it will make you ponder your own life mission. The characters and story are so vivid and memorable and will remain with you long after the last page is read. If you love a novel that digs deep into your soul and makes you think about the world and spirituality, then this book has it all. Highly recommended.”

Different, a novel by Datta Groover
A couple at odds, a family in danger, and a boy who doesn’t speak.
Frank MacBride’s intention to keep his family safe is complicated by relationship challenges with his wife Sofia, and by their young son Sam’s increasingly unusual and unsafe behavior.
No one can figure out why Sam doesn’t speak, or why he appears to be aware of things he should have no way of knowing. He seems to think he can heal people, and has his own determined agenda to make that happen. All contributing to his parent’s distress.
To make matters worse, people who Frank angered in the past may now be looking for some serious payback.
