EDITING AND WRITING SERVICES IN EDMONTON
Robert Proudfoot published a novel called "Come By Here, My Lord - Seen in a Mirror Dimly" through FriesenPress Inc. of Victoria, BC, in October 2020. This story focuses on Orwell Hughes, the expatriate son of a Canadian diplomat living in Lusaka, Zambia and attending the local University of Zambia in 1974. Orwell lives well and develops friendships with many young people, including his African peers, but he also suffers from racism and awkward social relationships that he can't solve. Orwell invites Tracy MacDonachie, his former Sunday school and youth leader - who encouraged him as an impressional lad back home in Canada - to visit him in Zambia, hoping that this wiser and more successful man can continue to mentor him. Tracy arrives with his younger sisters Alicia and Kathleen in tow, but the MacDonachies stay longer than planned and are not as remembered. They turn Orwell's idyllic lifestyle upside down and cause him to confront realities about Canada, Africa, human nature and himself.
