Chud is one of three people forever bound by love and the tragic mystery of events at a place they named Delaware, a place shown on the beautiful cover of the book. The writing was so passionate I felt that I was living Chud's life. I hate spoilers so I can't elaborate, but there are many unexpected twists and turns until we finally learn the secret of Delaware.
Peter Cunningham is an exceptional writer, an artist and poet with a wild sense of humour. The closing scenes of 'Consequences of the Heart' are extraordinary, epic and beautiful with amazing imagery,funny and tragic at the same time. A worn out and elderly body doesn't change the inner person. Chud loves and loves and loves some more. I was riveted, right up to the last line of the book.
