In 1956, toward the end of Reverend John Amess life, he begins a letter to his young son, a kind of last testament to his remarkable forebears. Ames is troubled too by his prodigal namesake, Jack Boughton, his best friends neer-do-well son, who seems to be a living contradiction of everything that Ames stands for.
