The Quick and the Dead
They are good people but in this book that doesn't seem to matter. Pay attention to quickk strangely revolting kitsch in the road stop, Remington New Army or Smith and Wesson Schofield, that place you dwad your father when he got old. The Quick and the Dead by Gerald Bullett.

This is a short, meditative novel written in the first person, recollecting events in the narrator's childhood. The instigating crisis of the story is the revelation, when he is six, that he is the offspring of an adulterous affair. His biological father has just gone off to war and plays no direct part in the story. The main characters are his legal father, Robert, a man of generous spirit, his mother, relatives, and two contrasting preachers, one authentic, the other a monster of self-righteousness who meets with a grisly end. Written with meticulous skill, as is typical of this author, this is a beautiful story that everyone will enjoy. In imagination, not in memory, I can picture the scene vividly enough: Calamy patient and puzzled; his young wife hesitating between temper and tears, not knowing which will the better serve to carry her across a difficult moment. He peers over his spectacles, mildly but with pain, at the young woman who, with a light word, and from God knows what frivolous impulse, has robbed him of his only child, cheated him of fatherhood.
