Mulubuku and the Fathers
MULUBUKU AND THE FATHERS involves the unsavory mortal entanglement between Moose, the father of a beautiful, brilliant daughter, Millie, and Gus, the father of her classmate, Curtis, an equally brilliant but sorely abused boy. The boy's viciously jealous father seeks access to the greater wealth and power of Millie's father by proposing a union between the two offspring. Moose tries for decades to shield his wife and daughter from the evil of Gus and any knowledge of his dealings with the man. Millie and Curtis, though good friends, realize their own plans for their futures without consulting either father, thereby precipitating the tragic end to the rivalry.
