Beware Of The God

Sue Booker

Can our differing ideas and attitudes towards pets and livestock, tell us more about our own nature and our relationships with each other?



How can people of widely differing beliefs, opinions and philosophies build a lasting and meaningful connection?

Sue Booker explores these issues through her sensitive development of two characters and their fragile relationship, from their initial forgotten encounter to a terrible and disturbing ending.
