Closure, a novel by Neil A. White, takes three tragic stories and intermeshes three lives. Using multiple points of view to tell each boy’s story from their unique perspective, the author weaves a tale of unspeakable horrors and terrible sadness and grief that never really can fully heal.
. . . a powerful story told with great compassion, a story of the fragile human condition and how, when the seeds of hatred and revenge take hold, multiple tragedies can spin out of control.

Closure, by Neil A. White, is one of those rare gems, which entertains as much as it instructs. Skillful characterizations weave together with a plot of heartbreaking emotional depth. A young boy’s innocence and security unravel through a series of traumas set against the realistic backdrop of the vibrant music and sports scene of Melbourne, Australia in the 1980s. The exponential, generational effect of loss and revenge are exquisitely captured in this gripping novel.
