In the end, love is more important than everything and it will conquer and overcome anything. Or that's how Damon saw it, anyway. Damon wanted a book that talked a lot about love. Damon Courtenay died on the morning of April Fool's Day. In this tribute to his son, Bryce Courtenay lays bare the suffering behind this young man's life. Damon's story is one of lifelong struggle, his love for Celeste, the compassion of family, and a fight to the end for integrity. A testimony to the power of love, April Fool's Day is also about understanding: how when we confront our worst, we can become our best. This life-affirming book will change the way you think.

April Fool's Day
July 5th, 2014
A captivating journey with a family confronting the realities of having a beloved family member suffering haemophilia and then AIDS in its early days. The reader is taught about the disease, it's effects on the victim and it's impacts on family and friends.

April Fool's Day

Not One of Bruce Courtenay's better books. I realize it was a book written in tribute of his son, in that respect it was lovely. But it did not hold my interest.
