Of Giants and Other Men by Caspar Peek

of

 

Swearing that he will avenge his father’s death, Tomás finds a friend in his cousin Fausto and the two boys become blood brothers, promising that they will always put one another first.

But events take an unexpected turn with the arrival of the alluring Ana, who has returned to the country from Europe. An attraction between Tomás and Ana begins to form, one which does not sit well with Fausto.

As the cousins grow into men, life takes them onto different paths: while Tomás becomes a doctor sworn to protect life, Fausto becomes a soldier who embraces his career with a passion that earns him the nickname “Lieutenant Knife.”

With their allegiance to each other being tested by a sickening war, and their love for the same woman, can Tomás and Fausto remain true to the vow they made when they were children? Or will war and revolution tear them apart?

“Of Giants and Other Men” is a masterful story of love, betrayal, honor and sacrifice, depicting the horror and beauty that lie at the core of the human heart.
