Till the Sun Grows Cold by John Bebout is a multi-layered story representing the grief of those who lost loved ones during the American Civil War, feelings of revenge, healing, and revival through love. Allen Cowles was robbed and killed while serving as a payroll train guard. As Merritt Cowles awaits the return of his son after the war, he receives a telegram notifying him of his son’s demise. After learning of potential foul play involved in his son’s death, Merritt acquires the services of the Pinkerton Detective Agency and meets the beautiful and charming Detective Kate Warne, who will help him track down his son’s killers. With the level-headed but brave Kate on his side, Merritt is confident he will find them and get revenge for his son’s death. Little does he know that revenge is a never-ending cycle of pain and loss.
Till the Sun Grows Cold by John Bebout is a fascinating, gripping, and entertaining novel. Kate and Merritt are strong characters who individually charmed me, but it’s their budding romance that kept me engaged from start to finish. The plot was unexpected and intriguing, and one message in particular resonated with me; the message about revenge and how it never ends. After seeking revenge for his son, Merritt feels no more satisfied; instead, the love between him and Kate appears to be the true source of his lust for life again. Revenge only resulted in more lives lost and no retribution for himself or his son. I loved reading this book; it is beautifully written, the story flowed effortlessly, and there was a clear direction and purpose in the plot.
