Richard Frenchabout this book: "SEND ME" is the fifth and last novel in a series called "Witnesses", which explores the ability of ordinary people to cope with crises like war and also our capacity to deepen our understanding of what we go through and to share our discoveries with others. In "SEND ME" Stephanie Markham, an accomplished editor, gathers the last instalments of stories concerning American wars in the 17th and 20th centuries and the battle against a destructive cult in the present day. She also finds a satisfactory measure of stability and happiness after a spell of grave uncertainty.
A central feature of the narrative is the fiction writing of Paul Kingsley -- a veteran, teacher, journalist, and father of 3 children. Adopted into a quintessential American family when he was a baby, he learned in his early 20's that his biological father was an ideologue who revived a cult called the Scythians that hopes to reform society by tyranny. Deeply shocked at the news and wishing to separate himself from his late father's ambitions and affirm his American identity, he joined the American army at the start of a war in Asia. This decision influences the rest of his life and leads him to become the kind of witness he believes is necessary for every fruitful society.
