A Review of Cassandra Parker’s HARLEY’S REDEMPTION
By Edentu Oroso
When I began reading Cassandra Parker’s HARLEY’S REDEMPTION, I didn’t know what to expect in its 389 pages. I almost ascribed it as another run-of-the-mill kind of romance centred stories with their banal offering. Few pages down the line, its cadences of requited love and selfless living began to rein on my sensibilities, to the extent, I wanted to go the whole hog, read to the end and discern its hidden motifs. The more I read, the more I came to the realization that I was inadvertently taken to a school of some sort…and I learned the art of life through the selfless acts of of the main character Harlan Davis (a.k.a. Harley), who turned a new page from a past ridden with alcohol, women, drug addiction, and unbridled biking activities, to a present rid of their stifling hold.
The striking thread in this tale is Harley’s humanity: living for the common good, a product of the direct influence of his servant Garret on his personality and his religious inclination through conversion to the Mormon Church. Ardently colour blind and shorn of the gritty realities of racial prejudices, Harlan Davis stands out as a rare breed in the rippling currents of life. His stupendous wealth partly inherited and partly earned at a tender age, business savvy and social status did not get in the way of his bowels of compassion, which touched lives boundlessly wherever he went with his streaks of largesse. Mari Forrester, his heartthrob, complements that wholesomeness with her brand of beauty, brains, patented care and love despite her middle class status. Together they are destined for higher things in human firmament.
If the need for literary piece is to steer readers’ imagination towards the ideals of goodness, then HARLEY’S REDEMPTION is considered a great success by carrying out its onerous task of informing, entertaining and educating us all in an enthralling manner.
The well-defined characters and their rich interplay of emotions also curry a good omen for the story, which is written in simple but elegant language. Cassandra Parker cleverly relives in HARLEY’S REDEMPTION, the historic past of American life via its beauteous sounds and imageries through the 1950s to the early 1970s as encapsulated in the music of Steppenwolf loved by Harlan Davis with a passion, and the revolution and novelties in the Harkey-Davidson motorcycle brand his ingenuity helped to mainstream.
If you are yet to read HARLEY’S REDEMPTION by Cassandra Parker, then you are missing out on a great signpost to a fruitful and meaningful life. I highly recommend this book as a template of what ought to be in human stead.
