by Robert Kelsey
Moving from Lon Gallagherís origins and his early years, The Seeds of Bella Lago takes its readers through a myriad of persons and happenings that weave together the lives of the community in Bella Lago. As the plot progresses, Lon, with the help of his closest friends, uncovers a large-scale conspiracy that has corrupted their town and threatens permanent damage. Told from a third-person omniscient perspective, readers not only follow Lonís personal narrative, but they are also present as the fragments of the plot piece themselves together throughout the work.
The Seeds of Bella Lago combines multiple narratives of both persons and places and centers them on the focal character of Lon Gallagher. Comprising a large portion of Lonís life, this work watches its main character develop and also offers a tale of mystery and suspense.
