Circumstances of Childhood by John W. Howell #Familylife #BookReview @HowellWave



When a former pro football star and broadcaster, now a Wall Street maven is accused of insider trading, will he be able to prove his innocence and expose those who are guilty?

Greg and his boyhood pal dreamed of big success in professional football and then later in business. Greg was the only one to live the dream. Now the founder of an investment fund Greg is faced with a routine audit finding by the SEC. The audit points to irregularities and all the tracks lead to Greg. The justice department hits him with an indictment of 23 counts of fraud, money laundering, and insider trading. His firm goes bust, and Greg is on his own.

His best friend knows he is innocent but has been ordered under penalty of eternal damnation not to help.

If you enjoy stories of riches to rags, redemption, brotherly love, and a little of the paranormal, Circumstance of Childhood will keep you riveted.

My Review

Greg Petros is featured in this stunning novel narrated by the ghost of his childhood friend and adopted brother, Kieth Petros. The two are inseparable as kids and grow to become football stars with the world on their plate- until there was one.

Kieth dies in a horrifying car accident and Greg must carry on without his best friend. And though his life is one stunning success after another, it’s bittersweet.

This is the compelling journey of love, loss, success, and failure. And how the choices we make in life affect our futures.

John crafts a compelling story told in first person through the eyes of Greg and Kieth Petros. It’s impossible not to get caught up in the drama of Greg’s life and the challenges he faces.

I give Circumstances of Childhood 4 lovely kisses- a great read!
